On February 17, 2022, we mark the 80th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066, the act of President Franklin D. Roosevelt that led to the forced removal and incarceration of over 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II. This year's event features Frank Abe, author of We Hereby Refuse and Erin Shigaki, a community artist.
The importance of remembering this day in American history has never been more critical. We are reminded of the fragility of civil liberties in times of crisis, and the importance of remaining vigilant in protecting the rights and freedoms of all. With the rise of xenophobia as anti-Asian hate, anti-Semitism, continued Islamophobia and other anti-immigrant violence, we come together to say, "Never Again is Now"!
