Happy Lantern Festival – February 5, 2023
Lantern Festival, also called Yuan Xiao Festival, is a holiday celebrated in China and other Asian countries that reveres ancestors on the 15th day of the first month of the lunar calendar. The Lantern Festival aims to promote reconciliation, peace, and forgiveness.
Promoting peace, harmony and understanding in our multi-cultural community!
Chinese Reconciliation Project Foundation (CRPF) is a nonprofit organization that advances civic and cultural harmony. We work with the community to resolve social and cultural conflicts, build pathways to create reconciliation, and broaden understanding and relationships between people to establish truly cohesive and caring communities.
Over the past 25 years, CRPF has worked with the City of Tacoma, Washington, and community activists to acknowledge, address, and reconcile the events of a forceful expulsion that drove its Chinese population from the city in 1885. The expulsion caused a great rift between the city and Chinese people, an effect that is felt within the community even today.
Actively working to heal our community, CRPF and the City of Tacoma created the Tacoma Chinese Reconciliation Park. The park serves as a destination that educates people about the expulsion and acts as a connection that infuses our city with hope, healing, and inclusivity. Using the park as a model of reconciliation, CRPF aims to demonstrate how the process of reconciliation can generate positive change and inspire more compassionate and united communities throughout the world.
