We are very excited to share that the Henry Luce Foundation has awarded the PLHC a $225,000 grant for our “Telling Untold Stories” project. Through this project, the PLHC plans to identify two under-served communities that have a public lands story to tell, assist the communities in sharing their story, and give them a platform through the American West Program (AWP). In addition, the Luce grant will expand our field, workshop, Parks as Portals to Learning, to additional partners and engage with a new national park.

Our first AWP funded by this grant will be on Nov. 7, 2019, and will feature a lecture from Dr. Kent Blansett, author of A Journey to Freedom: Richard Oakes, Alcatraz, and the Red Power Movement.
