9/11 Anniversary Town Hall: Japanese Internment & The Muslim Ban

September 8, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

A group of survivors of Japanese internment camps hold signs reading "I am a U.S. Concentration Camp Survivor"

This year marks the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066 signed by President Roosevelt that was responsible for Japanese internment camps during WWII.

The town hall will feature leaders from the Japanese, Arab and Muslim American communities. Panelists will discuss the impacts of discriminatory executive orders on their communities.

Please join us after the discussion for a Global Fridays performance by The Grateful Crane Ensemble. The play will go back to the high school dance days of young Japanese Americans held behind barbed wire fences in internment camps during WWII. Tickets are just $10 for AANM Members and $15 for general public, and are available here. Use the discount code “ISPU” for 25% off your ticket.

Admission to the discussion is FREE w/ RSVP; A $5.00 donation per person is appreciated. Light refreshments provided.
