PAY WHAT YOU WISH

On August 10, 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, landmark legislation through which the US government issued an apology and provided monetary compensation to Japanese Americans who had survived America’s concentration camps during World War II.

JANM will commemorate this unprecedented event in our nation’s history with a conversation between the Hon. Norman Y. Mineta and Mitch Maki, Go For Broke National Education Center President/CEO and author of Achieving the Impossible Dream: How Japanese Americans Achieved Redress.

Museum admission is “Pay What You Wish” on this day. RSVPs are strongly recommended using the link below.
