Day of Remembrance 75th Anniversary

Los Angeles will commemorate the 75th anniversary of President Franklin D. Roosevelt's executive order jailing over 120,000 Japanese-Americans during World War II.

LA Board of Supervisors member Janice Hahn co-sponsored a motion to create a Day of Remembrance to remember the Japanese-American men who fought in Europe for the U.S. 

Because of recent orders taken by the government, Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute program coordinator Nicole Sato says what happened in 1942 shouldn't happen again.

"Civil liberties should not be taken away or denied to anyone by executive order or such actions."

Below is one of the fliers that was posted in Los Angeles after the Executive Order was issued.
