Event description

Description

Please join us for an afternoon of learning as we watch And Then They Came for Us, which received the 2018 Silver Gavel Award from the American Bar Association, and hear from the film’s co-director and producer Abby Ginzberg, University of Hawaiʻi Law Professor Eric K. Yamamoto, and John Okutani, Japanese Cultural Center of Hawai‘i - Hawai‘i Internment Team Volunteer, who will discuss the forced incarceration of individuals of Japanese ancestry on the mainland and in Hawaiʻi and why we must continue to protect against suppressing the rights of people of any ancestry.

The movie will begin promptly at 2:00 PM. After the movie and panel discussion, please stay for light refreshments and the opportunity to talk story with the panelists and representatives from organizations that are providing legal or social services to the underserved. Tickets are only $35, of which $15 is tax-deductible.

Your support of this fundraiser will help to keep alive the important lessons of the past and promote community unity regardless of race or ancestry. We hope that MoveMeHawaiʻi will MOVE YOU.
