Selected time

3:00 PM  –  5:00 PM

In honor of the 30th anniversary of the signing of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, the Japanese American National Museum invites you to join us for an afternoon of reunion, reconnection, and reaffirmation of our commitment to democracy and justice. On August 10 at 3 p.m. JANM President and CEO Ann Burroughs, Go For Broke National Education Center President and CEO Mitch Maki, and Karin Wang, Executive Director of the David J. Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy at UCLA School of Law, will remind us that the fight for civil rights is most successful when done in solidarity across generations and regardless of race, class, gender, or any other single factor of identity.

On this afternoon, the museum will be taking group photos of all those involved in the redress movement of the 1980s as well as those who would like to reaffirm their commitment to democracy today. Following the photos, light refreshments will be served and guests will be invited to pledge their personal commitment to civil liberties by signing our Commitment Banner.

Admission to JANM on August 10 will be Pay What You Wish.

RSVPs strongly encouraged. Priority seating will be assigned to those who have made reservations in advance. RSVPs will be released 15 minutes before opening, seating thereafter will be first come first served.
