US National Park Service continues to support preservation of sites of conscience

The US National Park Service has developed a series of initiatives to document and preserve sites that expand representation stories that heretofore have not been included in the landscape of our nation’s history. These initiatives include efforts to identify sites pertaining to Latino Heritage, Asian Heritage, and LGBTQ Heritage, both at parks already included in the national park system and through the identification of new sites to be added to the system. The National Park Service recently announced a series of grants to support the preservation and interpretation of one of the more shameful episodes in the nation’s history—the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II.
