While times of global crisis can bring out the best in this country, they also have a history of surfacing deeply rooted xenophobia and bigotry. At a moment where many are fearful, we are once again seeing efforts to scapegoat a group of Americans based on their identity.

On May 5, the Pacific Council and Japanese American National Museum (JANM), in partnership with Skylight Books, will host a conversation with John Tateishi about his recent book, Redress: The Inside Story of the Successful Campaign for Japanese American Reparations, and his experiences leading the fight to seek reparative justice. Tateishi will join Karen Ishizuka, Chief Curator at JANM, to discuss the parallels between his own experiences, the post-9/11 period, and today.

In the midst of the “Safer at Home” order, it is more important than ever to support our local businesses and neighbors. Copies of Redress: The Inside Story of the Successful Campaign for Japanese American Reparations can be bought from from the JANM Store or from Skylight Books (in Los Feliz, Los Angeles).

This program is FREE, but please RSVP using the form below. You will be emailed instructions for how to join our conversation online. Please contact if you have any additional questions.
