On Saturday, February 19, 2022, we invite you to join us either in-person or virtually at our 4th annual Day of Remembrance event acknowledging Executive Order 9066. We will have a presentation from Ted Tanaka at 2:00 pm CST, who will relate his own experience of wartime incarceration. Afterward, at 3:45 pm CST, we will have a movie screening of the documentary, "Alternative Facts: The Lies of Executive Order 9066" followed by a Q&A session at 4:55 pm CST, from Hoyt Zia.

80 years ago on February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, which gave the U.S. Army the authority to remove civilians from the military zones that were established in Washington, Oregon, and California right after the attack on Pearl Harbor. This led to the incarceration of more than 120,000 people of Japanese descent, two-thirds of whom were American citizens.

The event is FREE, but registration is required for both in-person and virtual.
