As a National Park Service Affiliated Area and the first Smithsonian affiliate in the Pacific Northwest, the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience offers an authentic and unique perspective on the American story.

RCEF’s mission is to promote education for people in rural China that prepares them to improve their own lives and communities.
Underlying this mission is a commitment to affect the essence of education for rural students – the curriculum and teaching methods. We believe that it is not enough just to increase the number of years students spend in school or to improve the equipment and hardware available to them. Instead, we support teachers in rural areas to provide a different education to rural students, not just more of the same. We believe education should be practical, inclusive, and socially responsible.
We believe in providing opportunities for others to step outside their comfort zone and explore new communities, cultures, and cuisines in an effort to gain a greater understanding of the world.
We believe in encouraging others to fully immerse themselves in new experiences, continuously soaking up new knowledge and expanding their network.
Established in 1991, the National Civil Rights Museum is located at the former Lorraine Motel, where civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968. Through interactive exhibits, historic collections, dynamic speakers and special events, the museum offers visitors a chance to walk through history and learn more about a tumultuous and inspiring period of change.
To accommodate public demand for further educational opportunities, the museum underwent a $27.5 million renovation in 2013 and 2014, adding more than 40 new films, oral histories and interactive media to the already robust galleries. The result is a one-of-a-kind experience that has been featured on the History Channel and CNN, in USA Today and as the focus for the Academy Award-nominated documentary The Witness: From the Balcony of Room 306.
