Signing Ceremony of Senate Bill 796

Proud to have participated in the signing ceremony of Senate Bill 796 by California Governor Gavin Newsom in Manhattan Beach today. This bill, which is now California law, returns two parcels of oceanfront land to its rightful owners, the descendants of the late Charles and Willa Bruce.

The land was originally the home to Bruce’s Beach Lodge, a beach resort in the early 20th century for Africans-Americans who, at the time, had limited access to beaches.
