Forced Into Camps

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 4:00 pm on Tuesday, repeating until March 31, 2020

Lise Yasui’s documentary Family Gathering and Julie Otsuka’s novel When the Emperor Was Divine examine Japanese internment, family separation and their aftermath. We will discuss these artworks alongside current journalism on immigration and families. Articles on family separation, incarceration, deported parents and government policy are all possibilities. What positions did the church and citizens take regarding Japanese internment? How might this inform our calling as church members and citizens today? Sponsored by the Immigrant Welcoming Working Group.
