‘Alternative Facts’ Screening at Gardena Day of Remembrance


Day of Remembrance commemorates the Feb. 19, 1942 signing of Executive Order 9066, which forcibly removed over 120,000 Japanese and Japanese Americans from the West Coast and sent them to concentration camps across the nation.

This year’s Day of Remembrance program will examine the parallels between what happened in America 77 years ago and what is happening today. It will feature the premiere of Jon Osaki’s “Alternative Facts: The Lies of Executive Order 9066.”

The screening will be followed by a panel discussion featuring Osaki, Dale Minami of Fred Korematsu’s legal team, Nicole Oshima of UCLA Nikkei Student Union, and others.
