JANM 2022 Los Angeles Day of Remembrance


The annual Los Angeles Day of Remembrance commemorates the signing on February 19, 1942 of Executive Order 9066 by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. Executive Order 9066 authorized the military to remove and incarcerate persons of Japanese ancestry into American concentration camps during World War II. Focusing on the theme of "Power of Communities: Building Strength Through Collective Action'', this year's virtual event will honor the resilience and fight of the community over the 80 years since the signing of Executive Order 9066, and explore the next steps for ensuring a just and equitable future for all.

February 19, 2PM - 4PM

The event can be viewed on the Japanese American National Museum's YouTube Channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/janmdotorg
