About the Event
The City of Ventura tore down our Father Serra Monument under cover of darkness. We demand its return to its place overlooking the city he founded! Not only did Father Serra bring Christ to the Chumash people, but he personally fought for their legal rights and worked with them to found Ventura and build a better life for both natives and immigrants. We Venturans are proud of our great founder!
Father Serra is an important and loved figure in California history. Come celebrate our history and most importantly the life of Father Serra with a day of mariachis, food, and guest speakers!
Join us in demanding the return of our Father Serra monument and asking that the Ventura City Council and County Board of Supervisors respect and preserve our diverse, beautiful California history!
