Happy 40th Korematsu Day! – January 30, 2023

Since 2010, Hawai’i, Virginia, Florida, New York City, Arizona and now New Jersey have also established a day of recognition every year in honor of Fred Korematsu’s fight for justice and the importance of upholding our civil liberties and the Constitution. JACL DC was honored to sign the letter to Congressional leaders in support of legislation to recognize Fred Korematsu’s legacy as a civil rights hero:

(1) Fred Korematsu Congressional Gold Medal Act
(2) Recognizing the importance of establishing a national “Fred Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution”
(3) Korematsu-Takai Civil Liberties Protection Act
