Philanthropy & Contributions

Riverside Community College District is fully invested in the Center for Social Justice & Civil Liberties because RCCD believes the Center brings a new dimension to the study and understanding of society issues and historical events that shaped the story of inland Sothern California and the nation.

RCCD committed over $6 million for property and building acquisition, renovation, cultural/collections expertise, and the early phases of developing archives and The Okubo Collection. The District is seeking private support to further develop the Center as a state-of-the-art cultural, social justice and civil liberties resource for scholars and the public.
