FLORIN JACL - Sacramento valley chapter EVENTS
Date: February 8, 2020
Event: Northern California Time of Remembrance
Location: California Museum
Address: 1020 O Street, Sacramento, CA 95814
Description: “STANDING UP FOR THE VOICELESS”. The current administration and its supporters have increasingly scapegoated immigrants, Muslims, and other for our country’s problems. We encourage all to join us as we stand with immigrant communities to condemn the policies that dehumanize them; jailing and separation of parents, families and children; the Muslim ban and other unjust actions. For those of us who have experienced the unjust incarceration, it an opportunity to stand and demand that no matter where someone comes from or how they arrived to the United States, they be treated with dignity and respect.
Satsuki Ina and Emiko Omori leaders of Tsuru for Solidarity will share a video and the goals and successful activities of this organization. Tsuru for Solidarity is a nonviolent, direct action project of Japanese American social justice advocates.
