PAY WHAT YOU WISH

Day of Remembrance commemorates the signing of Executive Order 9066 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942. Executive Order 9066 authorized the military to remove and incarcerate persons of Japanese ancestry into American concentration camps. The theme for this year’s Day of Remembrance event is Democracy in Crisis: 1942 and 2020, exploring how democracy has been tested in both the past and present in the US.

Dr. Satsuki Ina, writer, activist, psychotherapist, and co-founder of Tsuru for Solidarity, will share about her work on the long-term impact of collective and historic trauma and of mobilizing to protest current policies that echo and reverberate the racism and hate so resonant of the historical Japanese American incarceration. Senator Mazie K. Hirono, Hawai‘i’s first female senator and the country’s first Asian American woman senator, will deliver a video message about her experiences fighting to preserve American democracy and representing communities whose voices are not often heard in Congress.

Admission to this event and the museum are both pay-what-you-wish on this day. RSVPs are strongly encouraged using the link below. Those who have made reservations in advance will be given priority seating.
