Community Day of Remembrance
At the Japanese American National Museum

REDRESS REMEMBERED
FREE ALL DAY

The Day of Remembrance marks President Roosevelt's signing of Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942, which authorized the unconstitutional forced removal of 120,000 Japanese Americans from the West Coast and Hawai'i during World War II.

On August 10, 1988 President Ronald Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 which legislated monetary reparations and an offical apology to thousands of individuals whose rights had been violated almost 50 years earlier. The Civil Liberties Act was won through a grassroots campaign and the efforts of the entire community along with many justice minded people.

This 2008 Day of Remembrance program celebrates the grassroots activism starting with Japanese Americans testifying at government-sanctioned hearings in 1981, through letter writing and lobbying for redress, to the current demand for compensation for Japanese Latin Americans. Day of Remembrance programs are part of the continued need to educate and remember and it is a tradition for many colleges to hold Day of Remembrance events on their campuses.
