This APA Heritage Month, we invite you to deepen your understanding of American xenophobia and racism, using Japanese American WWII incarceration and the current crisis of immigrant detention as case studies. This interactive learning experience is designed for the general public, including community members, teachers, students, life-long learners, and anyone who is looking to expand their knowledge and deepen their commitment to action.
The teach-in is free and open to the public. It will use a combination of short films and oral histories, as well as creative learning routines and dialogue. It is presented by Densho whose mission is to preserve and share history of the WWII incarceration of Japanese Americans to promote justice and equity today.
