Nelson MandelaThe Nelson Mandela Foundation, in partnership with NorthStar Memorial Group and the California chapter of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP), today announced the launch of a multifaceted effort to support the late-2016 unveiling of a human rights memorial honoring the life and legacy of civil rights icon, Nelson Mandela.

The 15-foot-tall monument is under construction at Skylawn Memorial Park in San Mateo. People can support the construction efforts by either 1) purchasing one of 1,000 personalized granite bricks which forms the walkway leading up to the memorial or 2) donating to a crowdfunding campaign. NorthStar will match all funds raised before May 31, up to $100,000.
