    "On February 19, 1942, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 resulting in the forced evacuation and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans deemed a threat to the security of the United States solely on the basis of race. The lessons from this WWII experience are especially relevant today in light of the hate violence, deportations and incarcerations suffered by Muslims, Sikhs and others of South Asian and Middle Eastern descent since September 11, 2001. Speakers and performers will draw lessons from the past to inform our understanding of present day events."
