Day of Remembrance

If you are organizing a Day of Remembrance in February 2013, please consider adding this issue to your program.

Day of Remembrance activities take place throughout the country in mid-February to mark the anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, which allowed to government to incarcerate 120,000 Japanese Americans, two-thirds of whom were American citizens, and who spent years in prisons without notice of charges, the right to an attorney, or the right to a trial.
