      Never Give Up! Minoru Yasui and the Fight for Justice

      The film tells the story of Minoru (Min) Yasui, the first Japanese American attorney in Oregon who also initiated the earliest legal test challenging the forced removal from the West Coast and subsequent incarceration of over 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry in U.S. concentration camps. The film documents his and his family’s experiences during the war and his nine months in solitary confinement awaiting his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.

      Holly Yasui, director of the film and Min Yasui’s youngest daughter, will be on hand for a post-film discussion. This program is presented in partnership with the New Mexico Japanese American Citizens League.
