Support Lane Nishikawa's New Documentary about the JACL "Our League of Dreams"
On Friday, February 19, 2021, I posted on FACEBOOK announcing OUR LEAGUE OF DREAMS, an educational documentary on the 90 plus year history of the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), the oldest and largest Asian American civil rights organization in the U.S. Established in 1929, the JACL was formed to fight the racism and discrimination that our immigrant grandparents and great grandparents faced. They continue the fight today to defend the civil and human rights of all diverse communities and minorities.
I am honored the JACL has appointed me to tell their story.
We chose February 19th, Day of Remembrance, to launch our fundraising campaign because of what this day means to our community. It marks the 79th anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066 by President Franklin D Roosevelt in 1942, resulting in the forced removal of the 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans on the West Coast to the ten U.S. Military Internment Camps spread across America’s heartland.

And here is the link to a SNEAK PREVIEW of some new scenes: https://youtu.be/oXjuaN-b0kc
Please help us preserve the JACL story for generations to come. I’ve attached the announcement that is appearing in this month’s Pacific Citizen below.

All my best,
