The 37th Annual San Jose Day of Remembrance event takes place on the 75th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066. The event carries the theme "Stand Up To Hate. " Hundreds of people will gather together at this annual event not only to remember the great civil liberties tragedy that occurred 75 years ago, but also to reflect on the rising tensions that are building within our communities today and what we can do to build bridges of trust, respect, and friendship.

 
The program will feature Samina Masood, Executive Director of Silicon Valley FACES, an organization dedicated to creating systemic change by equipping individuals to resist bias, bigotry, bullying, and violence, as well as former internee, Congressman Mike Honda, and other representatives from the community. The event also includes performances by the Aswat Ensemble, a multiethnic and multiracial musical group that brings folkloric, classical, and contemporary Arabic music to the public, and Japantown's San Jose Taiko.

Attendees are also asked to participate in the traditional candlelight procession through historic Japantown which honors the memory of Japanese Americans incarcerated in World War II concentration camps.

This event is free and open to the public. For more information call 408-373-0817 or email at info@sjnoc.org.
