Two films this month: (1) “Never Give Up! Minoru Yasui and the Fight for Justice,” about internment of Japanese Americans during WW II; and (2) “Families Torn Apart: America’s Deadly Immigration Policy,” about detention camps at the U.S. southern border. “Never Give Up” is newly relevant because the children of parents who were interned are now on the front line of resisting the imprisonment and separation of children from parents at our border.  After the films, immigration rights experts Jorge Barón with Northwest Immigration Rights Project, and Palmira Figueroa and Joseph Lachman with Washington Immigrant Solidarity Network will answer questions and offer opportunities for action.

Logistics: First Church is accessible by public transportation. For event attendees, parking on the 5th level or higher in the church garage (just west of the church, with an entrance on Warren Street) is free from 12 – 2 p.m.

The event is scheduled to run from 12pm to 2pm.
