‘Uniting Our Voices’ Is Theme of 2023 L.A. Day of Remembrance

DOR commemorates the signing of Executive Order 9066 on Feb. 19, 1942, by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It authorized the U.S. military to remove persons of Japanese ancestry from the West Coast and set into motion their incarceration into concentration camps during World War II.

This year’s theme, “Uniting Our Voices: Making Democracy Work for All,” illustrates how individuals and communities are powerful when they come together in support of one another and how democracy is only as strong as those who fight for it.

The program will feature a conversation between Traci Ishigo, co-founder of Vigilant Love, and Manjusha P. Kulkarni, co-founder of Stop AAPI Hate.
