Dear Members and Friends of CRPF:

Happy New Year! On behalf of the CPRF Board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support and wish you a very best Year of the Rat!

As we enter a new decade, the Board and I look forward to continuing our work in bringing further awareness of the past history of our city and assisting the City of Tacoma on the development of the Chinese Reconciliation Park. 2020 marks the 135th anniversary of the expulsion of Tacoma’s Chinese population, and we invite you to attend several events this year to not only commemorate the past but also to celebrate the progress Tacoma has made as a culturally diverse city 135 years later.

Please mark your calendar and plan on joining us. Event details and invitations are forthcoming. Stay tuned!
