A Day of Remembrance event featuring Gold Star father Khizr Khan and musician Kishi Bashi.

During World War II,120,000 Japanese Americans were forcibly incarcerated against their will for the sole “crime” of their Japanese ancestry. Today, American Muslims are being similarly targeted because of their faith. We’ve been here before, and it is our responsibility to ensure that we do not continue down a path that values prejudice and a false sense of security over liberty and justice.

On February 19, we will recognize Japanese American service members, survivors, resisters, and upstanders of World War II. And we are honored to welcome guest speaker Khizr Khan whose new memoir, «An American Family,» is an intensely personal story about the nature of true patriotism and what it’s like to risk everything you know for the promises contained in the U.S. Constitution.

Musician Kishi Bashi will screen a segment of his forthcoming documentary about Japanese American incarceration and will accompany it with a musical performance.

Doors will open at 1 p.m. and all attendees will be subjected to a courteous bag screening. We encourage guests to arrive early as your general admission ticket is not guarantee of a seat. Doors will open to non-ticket holders 10 minutes prior to the start of the program.

World War II incarceration survivors and Nisei veterans are encouraged to attend and will be honored during the event. If you plan to attend please email [email protected] with your name and the names of your accompanying family members so that we can issue VIP tickets to you.

Co-presented by: Densho, CAIR-Washington State, Seattle Center, The Seattle Public Library, NVC Foundation, Keiro Northwest, ACLU of Washington, Seattle Children's Theatre
