TRAVELING EXHIBITION

About the Exhibition

Through the diverse perspectives of seven ordinary citizens whose lives and communities were forever changed by World War II, this exhibition asks visitors to think critically about freedom, history, and, ultimately, the ongoing struggle to live democratically in a diverse America.

Fighting For Democracy: Who is the “We” in “We, the People”? is presented by the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy, an educational program of the Japanese American National Museum, to advance the understanding of, and commitment to, American democratic ideals. The Los Angeles exhibition opened in October, 2005, and was made possible with major support provided by the U.S. Army Center for Military History.
