1942 - 2002: What lessons can we learn from the WW2 Japanese American experience? On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which began the rounding up and internment of Japanese Americans. Some 120,000 people were stripped of their rights and incarcerated with no due process. Don't let this happen again!

Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress (NCRR) and the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee invite you to a thought provoking discussion on the relationship between Civil Liberties and National Security. Since the horrific terrorist attacks on the East Coast on Sept. 11th, people's desire for security has also opened the possibility of a permanent erosion of everyone's Civil Rights with passage of the "USA Patriot Act", indefinite incarceration of over 900 Dept. of Justice detainees, as well as talk of "secret military tribunals."

Join us for this important forum in the heart of L.A.'s Japanese American Community.

Saturday, Jan. 26, 2002 from 2-4 p.m.

Location: Japanese American Cultural Community Center JACCC

244 S. San Pedro St., between 2nd & 3rd streets in L.A.'s historic Little Tokyo district.

Speakers include;

Lillian Nakano... Former WW2 camp internee

Fred Okrand... ACLU Legal Director during WW2

Michel Shehadeh... Western Regional Director of the American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee

Carol Sobel... Civil Rights with National Lawyers Guild

Dima Hilat... Arab American Poet

Sponsored by;

Asian Concerns Committee of the Asian Bar Association

Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress

American Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee

Muslim Affairs Council
