The Pardoll Family Lecture Series Presents: Tom Ikeda, “The World War II Japanese American Incarceration and Why It Matters Today” Genocide and Human Rights Awareness Movement (GHRAM) Lecture.

2018 marks the 76th anniversary of Executive Order 9066, which led to the incarceration of 120,000 innocent Japanese Americans. To mark this anniversary, Densho executive director Tom Ikeda will discuss how this injustice happened during a time of fear and how we are seeing similar fears happening in America today. Tom will discuss how immigration bans, discriminatory laws, and incarceration in an American concentration camp affected his Gold Star Japanese immigrant grandparents.
