The community group working to revitalize and renovate San Francisco Japantown’s Peace Plaza received additional funding to bolster their efforts and ensure the project is completed as they envisioned. 

"We must see this project through to completion," said San Francisco Assembly member Phil Ting (D). "This isn’t just about modernizing a public space. It’s also about making amends to Japanese Americans who were forced out of Japantown not once, but twice. The state should be a partner in these efforts to make things right, and I was determined to fight for this funding."
