Seventy-five years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the violation of constitutional rights that resulted in the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans due to war hysteria and racism. Featuring those who were incarcerated, rediscovered photos of Dorothea Lange and the story of Fred Korematsu’s long journey to justice, "And Then They Came For Us" brings history into the present as it follows Japanese Americans speaking out against regressive immigration policies. This film is a cautionary and inspiring tale as knowing our history is the first step to ensuring we do not repeat it.
Join us for a screening of this award-winning documentary followed by a discussion that will use the film as a catalyst to examine pressing issues including immigration and justice.
