Welcome to the NCRR Day of Remembrance Archives

The Los Angeles chapter of the National Coalition for Redress/Reparations (now called Nikkei for Civil Rights & Redress) has organized more than twenty-five Day of Remembrances (DORs) since its founding in 1980.  Other organizations like the Japanese American Citizens League and more recently the Japanese American National Museum have joined NCRR as co-sponsoring organizations.  The annual Day of Remembrance program is held to commemorate the unprecedented and unjust incarceration of Japanese Americans in United States concentration camps during World War II.  The occasion also reminds us that even today, racism, fear and scapegoating can be directed toward any ethnic or minority group.  NCRR’s DORs promote grassroots activism.  Community activists, artists, and performers and public officials have participated in each of the Day of Remembrances.  Click here for more
