Japanese American Redress (For Teens)

The passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 provided a presidential apology and monetary redress payments to Americans affected by Executive Order 9066. How this legislation was created, fought for, and ultimately passed is the critical second half of the World War II experience for Japanese Americans. The story is told in a way that is understandable and inspirational to young people (grades 7 to 12) as they learn that the fight for redress is more than a great Japanese American story—it is a great American story.

Panelist:

  • Mitchell T. Maki, Ph.D., Vice Provost, Academic Affairs, California State University, Dominguez Hills
