75th Anniversary of the Signing of Executive Order 9066

February 19th is the date seventy-five years ago, when Executive Order 9066 was issued by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. This order gave the military authority to take necessary action to remove and incarcerate persons of Japanese ancestry along the west coast of America.  On this date we recognize and support the goals of the Japanese American community to once again hold a National Day of Remembrance to never forget how the government targeted and singled out American citizens who looked like the “enemy.”
