Speaker Series


May 19, 2021 / Noon - 1:00 pm (PST)

Live Stream

This Zoom program will explore the long-hidden WWII program of kidnapping, indefinite incarceration, and hostage exchange of Japanese Latin Americans and will discuss an international commission's recent finding of violations by the United States government.  Please join us as our distinguished panelists--a daughter-activist and two university professors--tell the story of the Japanese Peruvians and their struggle for justice.

Upcoming Speaker Series Events

A followup Speaker Series panel will look at two items of unfinished national business: reparations for African Americans starting with H.R. 40’s fact-finding commission; and reparations for Japanese Latin Americans for the violations found by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

A further Speaker Series panel will explore today’s echoes of the imprisonment and deportation of Japanese Latin Americans: border detentions and deportations of Latinx and Black asylum-seekers from El Salvador and from Haiti.
