IMIrJ (Interfaith Movement for Immigrant Justice), Oregon PSR (Physicians for Social Responsibility), Oregon Doctors 4 Camp Closure and friends are organizing a joint caravan up to Tacoma for the Day of Remembrance, Day of Action being planned by colleagues and friends in Washington.
The Day of Remembrance, Day of Action at NWDC commemorates the 78th anniversary of the Executive Order that incarcerated 126,000 citizens and immigrants of Japanese descent during WWII. Today, thousands of immigrants and refugees are confined in similar concentration camps. They are subjected to inhumane conditions, family separations, threats of deportation, and countless indignities.
Sunday, February 23 from 9am-5pm
The Caravan will leave from the parking lot of Martin Luther King, Jr. Elementary School (4906 NE 6th Ave, Portland, OR 97211.)
