Japanese Internment & Internment Today

Sat, Dec 1 2018 - 11:00am to 5:00pm
Location: 
Campus Center 102 Meeting Room, Campus Center 103/104 Combined

This semester, our campus org Pan Asians in Action (PAIA), along with the Latin American Student Organization (LASO) and Organizing for Undocumented Students Rights (OUSR), is going to be working with the JACL to put together a one-day summit on Japanese American Incarceration and modern day immigration Detention Centers. We were hoping to emphasize parallels in the experiences and where there is room for AAPI/undocumented/LatinX organizing to be done around the issue, and our idea is to feature one speaker on the Japanese American community and one on immigration and incarceration issues to each deliver separate keynotes and then sit together on a panel. The day would also include two workshops run by the student organizations, as well as lunch.
