      EVENT DETAILS
      America’s Promise

      Mitchell T. Maki, President of Go For Broke National Education Center and author of Achieving the Impossible Dream: How Japanese Americans Obtained Redress, will describe the Japanese American World War II experience through the redress movement. This talk is presented in partnership with the New Mexico Japanese American Citizens League.

      Nearly fifty years after being incarcerated by their own government, Japanese American concentration camp survivors succeeded in obtaining redress for the personal humiliation, family dislocation, and economic ruin caused by their ordeal. Members of this politically inexperienced minority group organized themselves at the grass-roots level, gathered political support, and succeeded in obtaining a written apology from the president of the United States and monetary compensation in accordance with the provisions of the 1988 Civil Liberties Act.
