Eighty years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the violation of constitutional rights that resulted in the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans. The film And Then They Came for Us features Japanese American activists such as actor George Takei and other incarcerees who bring history into the present to ensure that mistakes of the past are not repeated.
A limited number of complimentary parking passes will be provided by TCJACL to our membership as supply lasts. To request parking, email Carolyn Nayematsu at email@example.com
“Righting a Wrong: Japanese Americans and World War II”
This new traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian’s National Museum of American History includes engaging personal stories, documents, photographs, and interactives. Embracing themes that are as relevant today as they were years ago, the exhibition takes a deep look at immigration, prejudice, civil rights, heroism, and what it means to be an American.
