Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution - January 30thNEW

Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution - January 30th
Click For Location
Date: Friday, 30 January, 2026       Time: All Day

To commemorate Fred Korematsu journey as a civil rights activist, the "Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution" was observed for first time on January 30, 2011, by the state of California, and first such event commemoration for an Asian American in the US.

Fred Korematsu Background
Fred Toyosaburo Korematsu, (January 30, 1919 - March 30, 2005) was one of the many Japanese-American citizens living on the West Coast at the onset of World War II. Shortly after the Imperial Japanese Navy attacked Pearl Harbor, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, authorizing the Secretary of War and his military commanders to remove all individuals of Japanese ancestry from designated "military areas" and place them in internment camps in what is known as the Japanese American internment. When such orders were issued for the West Coast, Korematsu instead became a fugitive. The legality of the internment order was upheld by the United States Supreme Court in Korematsu v. United States, but Korematsu's conviction was overturned decades later after the disclosure of new evidence challenging the necessity of the internment, which had been withheld from the courts by the U.S. government during the war.
