Please join us for virtual Day of Remembrance 2021. We will gather online on Sunday, February 21st at 2pm CST. This year’s Day of Remembrance features an address from writer John Tateishi and Alderman Robin Rue Simmons. Tateishi was JACL’s Redress Director, developing the organization’s redress strategy, and Executive Director, guiding the organization’s response to 9/11 and anti-Muslim violence. Ald. Rue Simmons represents Evanston’s 5th Ward and helped pass the nation’s first reparations bill, which uses cannabis taxes to address historic and ongoing anti-Black racial discrimination. Josina Morita, Commissioner of the Metropolitan Water Reclamation District, will lead a follow-up discussion. You can watch the event by going to
