Mukai Farm & Garden Presents A Day of Remembrance film screening: And Then They Came For Us
Seventy-seven years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the profound violation of constitutional rights that resulted in the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans, 121 of whom were from Vashon-Maury Island. Featuring George Takei and many others who were incarcerated, as well as newly rediscovered photographs by Dorothea Lange, And Then They Came For Us is an award-winning film that brings history into the present, retelling this difficult story and following Japanese American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban. Knowing our history is the first step to ensuring we do not repeat it. This film is a cautionary and inspiring tale for these dark times when immigrants and refugees are under attack. February 19 is the Day of Remembrance that commemorates the internment of Japanese Americans across the country, and we invite you to join us to learn more and reflect on this critical and tragic history.

Joining us for a post-film discussion are:
Assistant Attorney General and Wing Luke Civil Rights Unit Lead Colleen Melody, who was involved in the lawsuit against the federal government that sought to stop the Muslim travel ban. Read more about her work in this Beachcomber article:

“It was a failure of American democracy, and yet because most Americans are not aware of that dark chapter of American history, it’s about to be repeated.” - George Takei, Actor and Activist
