Santa Monica Mirror: A bus stop that lives in infamy for Japanese American to be remembered

Venice Japanese American Memorial MarkerA committee that wants to mark the spot where 1,000 Japanese Americans were ordered to gather in Venice, California so they could board the bus to Manzanar has reached its fundraising goal, reports the Santa Monica Mirror.

The plan is to place a permanent monument  known as the Venice Japanese America Memorial Marker on the corner of Venice and Lincoln Boulevards.

A total of $100,000 has been raised for the project .

A local restaurant, Hama Sushi, donated 100 percent of the proceeds of Bento Boxes sold on April 23 to the memorial and State Senator Ted Lieu donated $5,000.

Fundraisers for this marker have been held since 2011.
