Day of Remembrance 2018 commemorates the 30th Anniversary of the Civil Liberties Act which was the official apology of the United States to the Japanese people affected by the incarceration. It acknowledges the fundamental injustice of the evacuation, and provides restitution to individuals of Japanese ancestry who were incarcerated.
Peggy Nagae, who was lead attorney for the Yasui v United States coram nobis case, will lead the discussion on the impact of the Civil Liberties Act signed by President Reagan.
Participants will have access to the History Colorado museum and exhibits until 5 pm.
