Forty years ago, the first Day of Remembrance Program was organized in Seattle. They called on the community to gather with this simple yet powerful message: “Remember the concentration camps; stand for redress with your family.” The Day of Remembrance observes the anniversary of President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s signing of Executive Order 9066, which paved the way for targeting Japanese Americans as threats to national security and gave the U.S. military the right to send anyone of Japanese ancestry, including American citizens, to concentration camps.

This year, the New York Day of Remembrance Committee revisits and reclaims that history. They invite everyone to join them for this year’s program not only to remember the concentration camps, but also to discuss our community’s role in standing up for human rights in the current political moment.

The program this year will feature journalist, author, and producer Frank Abe, who will speak about the first Day of Remembrance in Seattle.

This event is free. No registration required.
