The Emperor's Bridge Campaign

to honor the life + advance the legacy of Emperor Norton

In addition to conducting and presenting original research, offering educational and commemorative events, and pushing forward our original effort to have the Bay Bridge named for Emperor Norton...

The Emperor's Bridge Campaign is engaged in a wide variety of additional projects intended to honor the life and advance the legacy of the Emperor.

Some of these are active projects that the Campaign has been working on for more than 2 years — since  we became a nonprofit  in fall 2014.

Others are concept-phase projects that are "on the runway" right now — but that the Campaign wants to nurture to maturity.

All of them represent things that we believe need doing on behalf of the Emperor — and on behalf of the living histories and the cultural arcs that can be traced through him.
