Defend Serra

A monument of Father Junípero Serra, founder of San Buenaventura,  has stood in front of our city hall since 1936. The City illegally removed its landmark status and tore down the statue on the morning of July 23rd. Concerned citizens have filed a lawsuit against the city for its illegal removal of the landmark.

Defend Father Serra's reputation and bring back his beautiful monument by supporting our cause today! 

Your generous support will be used directly to pay for legal fees, campaign materials, and miscellaneous costs in bringing back our landmark.
