Day of Remembrance 2019

On February 24, BMUC is observing the annual Day of Remembrance of Executive Order 9066, which resulted in the incarceration of west-coast Japanese (aliens) and Japanese-Americans during World War II.

Rev. Akiko Miyake-Stoner will speak. She is in the award-winning documentary called “Silent Sacrifice”.  It is a film about the Japanese American incarceration in the San Joaquin Valley during WWII. View it at valleypbs.org/sacrifice/

There will be an exhibit of memorabilia in the social hall. Former internees will be available to talk about their experiences and answer questions. It is important to remember this injustice so it will never be repeated.
