We are actively working to preserve the physical artifacts as well as the stories and memories of life in one of America's concentration camps located at Poston, Arizona. It was named "Poston" or the "Colorado River Relocation Center", located on the Colorado River Indian Reservation during World War II. The Poston Community Alliance is a 501(c)(3)non-profit group.
The National Park Service has awarded the Poston Restoration Project a challenge grant of $25,994 to record video oral histories of Japanese Americans who were incarcerated during World War II at Poston.
This grant will support our travel to other communities so that we can conduct interviews.
You can help by nominating former Poston internees.

The "challenge" grant is means that for every $1 we contribute, the U.S. National Park Service will contribute $2.
Please consider helping us make this challenge by making a monetary donation.
