Aiko Herzig-Yoshinaga and Marjorie Lee will visit the Bridge to discuss and sign Speaking Out for Personal Justice: Site Summaries of Testimonies & Witnesses Registry from the U.S. Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians (CWRIC), 1981 . Speaking Out for Personal Justice is a compilation of catalogued summaries of all 789 oral testimonies from the CWRIC's 1981 public hearings. These heart-rending testimonies literally gave voice to the hardships and oppression that people suffered in the camps and in exile. After the hearings, the CWRIC'S subsequent report and recommendations were key factors in the passage of The Civil Liberties Act of 1988 (which granted token redress and reparations to camp-era survivors and their families).
