Remembering Japanese American Redress:
A Symposium on History, Incarceration, and Justice

Friday, April 28, 2006
9:00 - 5:00
Petersen Room, Allen Library North, 4th floor

This symposium will bring together activists and academics from around the Seattle area to reflect on the Japanese American redress movement of the 1960s-80s, which, in many ways, originated right here in the Pacific Northwest. How did a grassroots movement of everyday working people lead to a formal apology and monetary reparations from the U.S. federal government for the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II? What are the movement's historical lessons and lasting legacies on the ongoing struggle for social justice? These are some of the questions that the symposium will address throughout the day.
