Join Your Call’s next live show on Friday, April 19, at 6 p.m. at Mills College’s Lisser Hall. In partnership with Mills College Ethnic Studies Department and Public Policy Department, Your Call will host a discussion on lessons learned from the Japanese American redress movement and calls for reparations today.
Host Rose Aguilar will moderate discussion of the passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, which provided an apology and restitution to surviving detainees of Japanese internment camps. How did the redress movement grow and succeed? How does the Japanese American experience contrast with calls for reparations for African Americans and others whose rights have been violated by the US government?
Your Call is producing a series of events exploring the connections between Japanese American incarceration during WWII and modern threats to civil liberties. We’re calling it “HEAR: Histories of Exclusion And Resistance.”
This live event is part of a yearlong project funded by the California State Library’s California Civil Liberties Public Education Program.
