Join us via Zoom for this exciting event. Almost 80 years ago, President FranklinRoosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 which resulted in the detention, forced removaland incarceration of approximately 120,000 men, women and children, because of theirJapanese ancestry. Fred Korematsu, a young man from Northern California, foughtagainst that injustice. Although the U.S. Supreme Court, in a decision that was lateracknowledged to be “gravely wrong”, upheld his conviction in 1944, his renewed legalchallenge in the 1980s was a historical milestone in the fight for justice for all Americans,regardless of race or national origin. On January 30, 2022, join us as we honor hisresilience.
