This year marks the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066 which forced the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. While deemed a "military necessity" at the time, a long history of anti-Asian discrimination and exclusion provides important context for this violation of Constitutional rights and raises fundamental questions about who is and is not accepted as "American." Please join us for a panel presentation, following by discussion about the internment and its potential lessons for us today. Tuesday February 28th, 2-3:30pm, Asian & Pacific Cultural Center.
