At a moment where many are fearful\, we are once again seeing eff orts to scapegoat a group of Americans based on their identity.\n\nOn May 5\, the Pacific Council and Japanese American National Museum (JANM)\, in partnership with Skylight Books\, will host a conversation with <strong>Jo hn Tateishi</strong> about his recent book\,&nbsp\;<em><strong>Redress: Th e Inside Story of the Successful Campaign for Japanese American Reparation s</strong></em>\, and his experiences leading the fight to seek reparative justice. Tateishi will join <strong>Karen Ishizuka</strong>\, Chief Curat or at JANM\, to discuss the parallels between his own experiences\, the po st-9/11 period\, and today.\n\nIn the midst of the &ldquo\;Safer at Home&r dquo\; order\, it is more important than ever to support our local busines ses and neighbors.
