Join Congressional Cemetery and the 1882 Foundation on April 6 for grave-cleaning and memorialization of our Range 99 Chinese American Memorial!

HCC staff, representatives from the 1882 foundation, and families get together to dedicate new memorial bricks and launch HCC’s new Range 99 pamphlet to the public.

Kicking off at 10 AM, our Qing Ming celebration will start with remarks and a dedication ceremony, before a private youth group engages in cleaning activities to honor the memories of those who came before.

The 1882 Foundation is a non-profit organization based out of DC Chinatown that seeks to broaden public awareness of the history and continuing significance of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882. It does this through building collaborations nationally focused on organizing an annual 1882 Symposium in Washington D.C., recording oral histories and preserving sites guided by Talk Story concepts, and strengthening public education about the Chinese and Asian American experience by promoting attention to curriculum content and resources, encouraging teacher workshops, and making material more easily accessible for educators and researchers.
