Ordinary people become heroes when they reach across boundaries and turn conscience into action, such as J.B. Peckham, who helped San Jose Issei acquire land; Josephine Duveneck, who helped internees at Tanforan; and Earl Finch, an Alabaman who helped hundreds of soldiers in the 442nd. Join us as Siegel, author of In Good Conscience: Supporting Japanese Americans During the Internment, discusses these stories plus others and why they are still relevant today. 

Cost: Free with admission to the museum (non-members, $5; students and seniors over age 65, $3; JAMsj members and children under 12, free)
Reserve your spot today by contacting PublicPrograms@jamsj.org or calling (408) 294-3138.
