Join us in Seattle, WA for a National Conference commemorating the 25th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988. ~

The Conference will explore the historic and contemporary connections of the Japanese American experience to local, state, and national histories.

2013 marks the 25th anniversary of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, which granted redress and reparations to Japanese Americans incarcerated during World War II. Attendees will hear firsthand about the crafting of the Civil Liberties Act, including the factors that led to its creation and the pioneering involvement of the Pacific Northwest's Japanese American community. There will also be opportunities to hear from those incarcerated in the War Relocation Authority camps of Heart Mountain, Minidoka, Tule Lake, and Manzanar.

Additionally, special Conference bus and walking tours and other activities such as the screening of Farewell to Manzanar , Community Marketplace, and Expo are being offered to ensure an impactful Conference experience for all participants, young and old.
