The annual San Jose Day of Remembrance brings different communities together in order to build trust, respect, and understanding among all people and to renew the pledge to fight for equality, justice, and peace.

The event commemorates the signing of the  Executive Order 9066, which led to what is known as the Japanese Internment, and recognizes the anniversary of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988.

2018 San Jose Day of Remembrance
Sunday, February 18, 2018 | 5:30-7:30 pm
San Jose Buddhist Church Betsuin, 640 N 5th Street, San Jose

The 2018 event carries the theme, “Speak Out For Justice.” Hundreds of people will gather together at this annual event not only to remember the great civil liberties tragedy that occurred over 75 years ago, but also to reflect on the rising tensions that are building within our communities today and what we can do to build bridges of trust, respect, and friendship.

The program also includes performances by the Aswat Ensemble,a multi-ethnic and multi-racial musical group that brings folkloric, classical, and contemporary Arabic music to the public, and Japantown’s San Jose Taiko.
