Midwest Buddhist Temple , Chicago
These conversations will be an opportunity for Japanese Americans and others with a connection to the incarceration, resettlement, and redress to share stories across generations. Facilitators will help participants to take turns listening, sharing, and asking questions in small, intimate groups.
People will be assigned to small groups of 10-15 people and groups will be set up to have multiple generations present. People are welcome to attend one day or attend both. This event is free of charge.
Pre-Registration is strongly recommended but walk-ins are welcome.
