Event Description
On February 19, 1942, President Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066, a document that authorized the Secretary of War to order the mandatory evacuation of "all persons of Japanese ancestry" from western regions of the United States and their subsequent resettlement in "internment camps." Join faculty and students for a conversation about the experiences of those subject to this order, whose number included Willamette University students compelled to leave the campus, and to reflect on the legacies and lessons of internment for us today.
