The 39th Annual San Jose Day of Remembrance event commemorates the anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066. The order, signed on February 19, 1942, led to the forced removal and incarceration of 120,000 people of Japanese descent during World War II. Hundreds of people will gather together at this annual event not only to remember that great civil liberties tragedy, but also to reflect on the rising tensions that are building within our communities today.

The 2019 event carries the theme, "#Never Again is Now." During these tumultuous times, ordinary people, many of whom were silent in the past, are now making their voices heard. We have been seeing a great social movement on many fronts and we are hearing the large number of voices speaking out against the separation of families on the border, the unequal treatment and harrassment of women, and they are saying 'no' to racism, homophobia, and Islamaphobia. Thousands of people are mobilizing and rising up from within their own communities to effect positive change.

The 39th Day of Remembrance features Don Tamaki, an attorney from the Korematsu coram nobis legal team; Teresa Castellanos, a representative from the County of Santa Clara Office of Immigrant Relations; Chizu Omori, a fomer internee, activist, and coproducer of the film, "Rabbit in the Moon"; a special performance by internationally acclaimed San Jose Taiko, and the traditional candlelight procession through historic San Jose Japantown.
