To commemorate the unconstitutional internment of 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War 2, members of the Japanese American community held a candlelight vigil to warn against hate crimes committed against Arab Americans and their possible internment in the event of a full scale war. In this photograph, dozens of Japanese Americans solemnly hold their candles during a moment of silence for all those who were killed in the appalling terrorist attacks of Sept. 11th.
Four mainstream organizations of the Japanese American community helped to organize the event... the Japanese American Citizens League, the Japanese American National Museum, the Japanese American Cultural and Community Center, the Little Tokyo Service Center, and the Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress (NCRR).
