From Mass Incarceration of Japanese Americans to the Muslim Ban

  • ADVANCING JUSTICE-ASIAN LAW CAUCUS 55 Columbus Avenue San Francisco, CA, 94111 United States (map)

On the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, which authorized the incarceration of approximately 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry in the U.S. during WWII, we remember its enduring legacy, and fight back against its modern day parallels. Join us for a screening of the documentary 9066-9/11: America's Concentration Camps Then... and Now? followed by a panel discussion.
