Please come to learn about the Tsuru for Solidarity and how you can join efforts in preparation for the "National Pilgrimage to Close the Camps" in Washington, D.C. on June 5 - 7, 2020.
This event will be a historic pilgrimage for people of Japanese ancestry to heal our intergenerational wounds by standing in solidarity with immigrants and all people of color being targeted by policies of hatred and fear so reminiscent of our past. Representing wings of hope, we will bring 125,000 paper cranes to hang on the White House fence, one for each Japanese American and Japanese Latin American incarcerated in American concentration camps during WWII.
This informational gathering is co-sponsored by San Jose JACL, Silicon Valley Asian Pacific FilmFest, Contemporary Asian Theatre Scene,Tsuru for Solidarity Bay Area, and Yu-Ai Kai.
Please RSVP by Jan. 10th to Sharon Uyeda at
firstname.lastname@example.org to assist in the planning.
We look forward to seeing you there! Robin Goka Huynh, Nancy Ukai, Sharon Uyeda, Steve Yamaguma
