Join us for the launch of the short film, Discover the Stories of Japanese Canadians in Surrey. The film captured some highlights of last year’s event when we heard and shared the stories of the early settlers who came from Japan to build their lives and contribute to the growing community of Surrey. The stories also remind us about the reasons we need to support inclusiveness and reject the racist rhetoric that we thought would never be heard again, and is being repeated today. Discover a part of Surrey’s rich cultural heritage and learn that we have more in common than you may think. Surrey’s Poet Laureate Renée Sarojini Saklikar will be hosting the event along with Greater Vancouver Japanese Canadian Citizens’ Association president Lorene Oikawa.
