Community Day of Remembrance
The Day of Remembrance commemorates the signing of Executive Order 9066 on February 19, 1942, which led to the incarceration of nearly 120,000 Japanese Americans. The program will feature the premier screening of the film Stand Up For Justice, the story of 16-year-old Mexican American Ralph Lazo who voluntarily went to Manzanar to remain with his friends at a time when few stood up for Japanese Americans. The program will also recognize individuals and organizations who have taken principled positions and "stood up for justice."
Produced by Visual Communications and Nikkei for Civil Rights & Redress (NCRR), Stand Up For Justice will screen at the George & Sakaye Aratani Japan America Theater (244 S. San Pedro St., Los Angeles) located adjacent to Little Tokyo's Japanese American Cultural and Community Center. Admission is $20 and $15 for seniors and students with valid ID.
