Members and friends of the JACL-AZ community visit the Gila River Indian Community in the Spring and Fall to clean and restore the historic monument constructed during WWII to honor the Japanese Americans who served in the U.S. military. This tradition, started by JACL-AZ community leaders Mas Inoshita and Joe Allman, consists of picking up trash and painting over graffiti. Supplies such as trash bags, paint, brushes, gloves, as well as water, are provided. Participants also have an opportunity to offer remembrance through service, words, music and/or quiet reflection. This is an excellent opportunity for members, friends, family and students to learn about the history of Japanese American Incarceration while performing community service.
