Our History, Our Responsibility
A Day of Remembrance event to honor Japanese Americans of World War II and stand in solidarity with American Muslims today.

During World War II,120,000 Japanese Americans were forcibly incarcerated against their will for the sole crime of their Japanese ancestry. Today, American Muslims are being similarly targeted because of their faith. We've been here before, and it is our responsibility to ensure that we do not continue down a path that values prejudice and a false sense of security over liberty and justice.

On February 19, we will recognize Japanese American service members, survivors, resisters, and upstanders of World War II. And we are honored to welcome guest speaker Khizr Khan whose new memoir, An American Family, is an intensely personal story about the nature of true patriotism and what its like to risk everything you know for the promises contained in the U.S. Constitution.

Musician Kishi Bashi will present a segment of his forthcoming documentary about Japanese American incarceration and will accompany it with a musical performance.

February 19, 2018 from 2:00-3:30 p.m. at Seattle Center Fisher Pavilion
www.densho.org/dor2018

Doors will open at 1 p.m. and all attendees will be subjected to a courteous bag screening. We encourage guests to arrive early as your general admission ticket is not guarantee of a seat. Doors will open to non-ticket holders 10 minutes prior to the start of the program.

World War II incarceration survivors and Nisei veterans are encouraged to attend and will be honored during the event. If you plan to attend please email info@densho.org with your name and the names of your accompanying family members so that we can issue VIP tickets to you.
