Launching on Aug. 26, 2017, the Unity Center at the California Museum celebrates the state’s diverse people, customs and cultures.
Initiated in 1999 in response to a series of Northern California hate crimes, the Center’s interactive multimedia exhibits highlight leaders in the state’s rich civil rights history and encourage visitors to find common ground while embracing their own individuality.
The Center’s first installation, We Are All Californians: Stories of Modern Immigration, opened in 2015. Currently under development, the rest of the Center will feature interactive exhibits exploring significant chapters of California’s rich civil rights history, along with a state-of-the-art classroom.
Through advocacy tools and engaging educational programs, visitors are empowered to be Unity Activists, exercising their rights and standing up for the rights of others – regardless of belief, background, identity or gender.
