We Are Not The Enemy! Remembering the World War II Internment of Japanese Latin Americans and Their Ongoing Struggle for Justice.

 

Grace Shimizu is the director of the Japanese Peruvian Oral History Project and coordinator for Campaign For Justice: Redress NOW for Japanese Latin Americans!  She is a prominent advocate for former Japanese Latin Americans, working to preserve their wartime experience of kidnapping, internment, and hostage exchange under the US Latin American Rendition Program during WWII and to secure government redress for such war crimes.  In her talk she will discuss the significance of this ongoing struggle for truth and government accountability for the civil and human rights challenges we face today.
