We are proud to continue our collaboration with the University of San Francisco's Asian Pacific American Studies on their Day of Remembrance events, and are excited about the USF's 2017 Day of Remembrance, "Remembering and Resisting: Practicing Solidarity During Immigration Raids." This year's program commemorates the 75th anniversary of Japanese American internment during World War II. This year's event draws connections between Japanese American internment and the current political environment in the United States. Event attendees will participate in a training session to become part of a team of legal observers, moral witnesses, and sources of support and sanctuary for community members impacted by Immigration & Customs Enforcement (ICE) raids.
The Day of Remembrance event & ICE raid training is from 5:00-6:30 PM on Monday, February 27 in Fromm Hall's Xavier Room. This program is free and open to the public.
