Power of words handbook
Words matter and more important today to understand that true descriptive and accurate “words” are used instead of euphemisms. National JACL has updated the “Power of Words Handbook” so download and learn why words like “non-aliens” was used instead of “citizens” or “internment camps” instead of “concentration camps.” We have to learn and use the correct "words" or non-sensical terms will continue to be used to misrepresent how horrific ripping families from their homes and imprisoning them in US concentration camps truly was.
