USJC Midwest and Southeast Regions Collaborate to Learn More About Japanese American Incarceration Experiences

On January 19, the Midwest and Southeast regions collaborated on a virtual event to learn more about the Japanese American incarceration camps during World War II.

Participants welcomed keynote speaker Sally Ohno Sudo, who shared her personal experiences of incarceration with the group. Her personal stories were further illustrated by effective use of visuals, which allowed the audience a rare opportunity to listen to a firsthand account of the Japanese American incarceration experience, a topic Ms. Sudo has been sharing with audiences for many years.

Ms. Sudo shared that she hopes to convey that each individual has a responsibility to voice their opinion when they see a public injustice taking place by sharing her story with audiences. To watch the full presentation, click here.
