He has been centrally involved in the fight to expand civil and political rights of racial minorities in the U.S., dialogue surrounding the Japanese governments responsibility to Chinese, Koreans, and other Asian targets of Japanese aggression during World War II as well as playing a key role as strategist and advisor during former Los Alamos National Laboratory scientist Wen Ho Lees battle against espionage charges.
