THE USA PATRIOT ACT AND
THE WORLD WAR II INTERNMENT CAMPS:
An Educational Forum sponsored by the Muslim Public Affairs Council and the Nikkei for Civil Rights and Redress 9/11 Committee
MARCH 1, 2003 - 2:00 PM
Japanese American Cultural Community Center, Room 410
244 South San Pedro Street
OUR LOYALTY WAS QUESTIONED. WE WERE GUILTY BY REASON OF RACE.
During World War I there were the Palmer Raids. During World War II there were the internment camps for Japanese Americans and today there is the USA Patriot Act. The Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC) and the Nikkei for Civil Rights & Redress (NCRR) September 11th Committee are sponsoring an educational program on the USA Patriot Act on March 1 at the Japanese American Cultural Community Center at 2:00 PM. Speakers include Nagwa Ibrahim from MPAC who will explain what the Patriot Act does and Federal Judge Robert Takasugi who will share his perspective as a Japanese American and as an advocate for justice.
The USA Patriot Act rolls back the clock on our democratic and hard won civil rights and does nothing to combat terrorism. Last month, MPAC along with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the American Muslim Council (AMC) and the American Muslim Alliance (AMA) formed a coalition to repeal and amend this law. Learn more about USA Patriot Act and the proposed Patriot Act II and why civil rights organizations oppose them.
