Please come to meet members of the Bay Area Tsuru for Solidarity Team to learn more about who we are and how you can join our effort in preparation for the“National Pilgrimage to Close the Camps” in Washington, D.C. on June 5-7, 2020.
This event will be a historic pilgrimage for people of Japanese ancestry to heal our own intergenerational wounds by standing in solidarity with immigrants and all people of color being targeted by policies of hatred and fear so reminiscent of our past. Representing wings of hope, we will bring 125,000 paper cranes to hang on the White House fence, one for each Japanese American and Japanese Latin American incarcerated in American concentration camps during WWII.
We will bring tsuru from across the country, beat our taiko drums, and raise our voices to demand that this administration STOP REPEATING HISTORY!
Please join us to learn more about Tsuru Fold-Ins, Caravan for Justice, Petition to Close the Camps, Healing Circles for Change, JA Memorial Gathering, and local and regional protest actions.
Please RSVP by Oct. 23rd to attend this informational meeting by contacting Satsuki Ina at firstname.lastname@example.org
We look forward to seeing you there!
