Justice Denied: Remembering 1942

The Day of Remembrance commemorates President Roosevelt's signing of Executive Order 9066, which allowed the U.S. government to wrongfully imprison Americans of Japanese ancestry and Japanese immigrants. February 18 is a day to reflect on those events surrounding the internment of Japanese Americans, and to continue telling the story of this infamous chapter in U.S. history.

The program begins at 10:00am at the MAX Expo Center station (Interstate MAX yellow line) and continues in hall "D" of the Expo Center.

Sponsored by Unite People Youth Group, Japanese Ancestral Society, Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center, Portland chapter of Japanese American Citizens League, Epworth United Methodist Church, Hiroshima Club, JASO, Nikkei Fujinkai, and Veleda Club.

Parking at the Expo Center is $7 per vehicle.
