Free Film: Never Give Up! Minoru Yasui and the Fight for Justice
October 10, 2018 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
Never Give Up! Minoru Yasui and the Fight for Justice will be screening for free at JCCCW. The film tells the story of Minoru (Min) Yasui, son of Japanese immigrant parents, born in 1916 and raised in the farming community of Hood River, Oregon. He was the first Japanese American attorney in Oregon, and during WWII, he initiated the first legal test challenging the forced removal from the West Coast and subsequent incarceration of Japanese American Citizens.
