Members Only Film Screening—For the Sake of the Children


For the Sake of the Children is a new, one-hour documentary that explores the legacy of the World War II US incarceration of Japanese Americans, with a particular focus on its impact on the descendants of incarcerated mothers.

The film examines the complex interplay of culture, racial prejudice, history, and intergenerational differences as it traces the life journeys of four generations of Japanese Americans. Reflecting a cross-section of society, these individuals include artists, politicians, lawyers, journalists, activists, and actors. Notable participants include Norman Y. Mineta, former US Secretary of Transportation and US Secretary of Commerce, and George Takei, actor and activist. Many of these stories have, until now, never been told.

RSVP by February 16 to or 213.830.5646.
