National Japanese American Historical Society Annual Award Ceremony

On Saturday, May 5, Consul General Uyama attended the National Japanese American Historical Society’s (NJAHS) Annual Award Ceremony. On that day, in celebration of the 30th anniversary of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988, NJAHS honored the movers and shakers of four organizations which pushed for a federal act (Public Law 100-383) that granted redress of $20,000 and a formal presidential apology to every surviving U.S. citizen or legal resident immigrant of Japanese ancestry incarcerated during World War II.
