Japanese WWII incarceration

Event

Day of Remembrance

The Mile High chapter of JACL will host the annual Day of Remembrance event, which marks February 19, 1942, when President Franklin Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, which cleared the way for 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry to be incarcerated in American concentration camps during World War II. Our program for the day will feature key speakers and presentations explaining the significance and impact of the event.
