Day of Remembrance 2018

February 18 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

Each year, Chicago’s Japanese American community comes together to remember President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s signing of Executive Order 9066, which led to the incarceration of some 120,000 Japanese Americans during World War II. This program serves as a reminder of the fragility of civil liberties in times of crisis and the importance of remaining vigilant in protecting the rights and freedoms of all.

Day of Remembrance is sponsored by the Chicago Japanese American Council, the Chicago Japanese American Historical Society, the Japanese American Citizen League–Chicago Chapter, the Japanese American Service Committee, and the Japanese Mutual Aid Society of Chicago.

*Advance Registration Required – you may register using the Chicago History Museum link below, or by calling the museum (312-642-4600) during operating hours.
