Event description

Description

In 1988, President Ronald Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act granting an apology and financial reparations on behalf of the United States for the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. This official apology serves as a platform for our current day discussions of potential mass incarcerations of other groups. The passage of the Civil Liberties Act would not have been possible without the courage and integrity demonstrated by the Nisei (Japanese American) veterans. These men chose to protect America at a time when America chose not to protect them. Mitchell T. Maki, President of Go For Broke National Education Center and author of Achieving the Impossible Dream: How Japanese American Obtained Redress, will discuss the Nisei Veteran contribution to redress. A Q&A will follow the program.
