The Garnier Building dates back to the original Chinatown in Los Angeles. It acted as an important community resource for Chinese Americans and housed many social and business groups, including the Chinese American Citizens Alliance. The alliance worked as advocates against discrimination and were active in registering Chinese American citizens to vote.
