Introductory Webinar

Japanese American Incarceration in WWII

7:00 pm — 8:00 pm

How did Japanese Americans experience and resist incarceration in the United States during WWII? How can we teach about Japanese American incarceration accurately and sensitively, while also placing it in a larger discussion of U.S. immigration policies?

We’ll explore the lessons in the Choices mini unit (provided), Japanese American Incarceration in World War II, and ways to connect the history of this period to the work of activists today who are addressing immigrant rights and U.S. immigration policy.
