Greater Vancouver JCCA
Legacy of Redress Forum
Sun, Nov 19, 2017 from 2 to 4:30 pm
Peter Kaye Room, Vancouver Public Library Central Branch
350 W. Georgia Street
75 years ago, 22,000 Canadians of Japanese ancestry were labelled enemy aliens, and forcibly removed from the BC coast in 1942. Join us for this free public forum where we will explore the history of the Japanese Canadian internment, and the connection to the injustices faced by Indigenous peoples, and the Canadian Muslim community. We will hear directly from representatives from the three communities, Mary KitagawaSxwpilemaát Siyám / Chief Leanne Joe, and Itrath Syed. We will then have the opportunity to discuss what is happening today, and how we can work together to preserve our rights and eliminate discrimination. RSVP gvjcca@gmail.com [Subject:  Redress Forum] or call: 604-777.5222 and provide your name, and phone number.
