We as Nikkei have an important role to play in taking a stand against this hate. We know what it means to be singled out as the enemy. We experienced government actions that took away our rights. We know what it means to have no one to support us in our fight for freedom. We lived through the loss of lives, dignity and livelihood.

Through the redress and reparations victory in 1990, the US government found that the Japanese American experience was a result of "race prejudice, war hysteria and a failure of political leadership." (Sound familiar?) And one of the purposes of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988 was to discourage the occurrences of similar injustices and violations of civil liberties in the future. Standing on the shoulders of our grandparents, parents and others, we have an obligation to do what's right today.

What Can You Do?
Please join a Nikkei contingent on May 6th for a Rally of Inclusion at noon at Portsmouth Square (733 Kearny Street, SF Chinatown). This is a remembrance of the anniversary of the Chinese Exclusion Act, the first act to exclude a group of people based on race. You can also sponsor this action as an individual or an organization. Look for the sign "Japanese American Resisters."

Rally for Inclusion: Remembering the 135th Anniversary of the Chinese Exclusion Act, we stand together in solidarity to resist the Muslim travel ban and anti-immigrant and refugee policies. Excluding immigrants on the basis of race and religion was wrong then and it's wrong now!
