POWER OF WORDS TERMINOLOGY
The Power of Words is a grassroots campaign to identify, discuss and implement a plan within the organization of the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) to identify euphemisms and misnomers and encourage the use of more accurate terminology as it relates to the forced removal and incarceration of Japanese and Japanese Americans during World War II.
