NYC Day of Remembrance
Saturday, April 9, 2011 (All day)
1:00pm - 4:00pm
This is a special commemoration of the WW2 incarceration of Japanese Americans where a representative of Park 51 (the "Ground Zero Mosque") will be speaking. Following that I'll be sharing the trailer of Enemy Alien.
Our 2011 Day of Remembrance gathering is named "9066 / 9/11: Japanese American and Muslim and Arab American Communities: In Crises, In Solidarity, In Justice, In Compassion". We will be commemorating Executive Order 9066 which mandated the forced incarceration of Japanese-Americans during WWII, and the aftermath of September 11 targeting Arab and Muslim-Americans.
In recognition of the approaching 10th anniversary since 9/11, please join us as we continue to do the important work of healing and reflecting over the internment, while simultaneously considering how we as a community can stand next to another in a similar time of peril.
