The Remembrance Project

Marking the 70 year anniversary of United States Executive Order 9066, the Japanese American National Museum and actor George Takei has launched their newest initiative, the Remembrance Project. Issued during World War II by President Roosevelt on February 19, 1942, the Executive Order 9066 led to the internment of Japanese Americans and instigated unfair indignities and injustice for over 285,000 people.

In an effort to build a permanent “living museum,” the Remembrance project, presented as an online project encourages individuals and families to remember the stories of those who lives were changed forever. The three-year-long initiative encourages visitors to learn about the unique tribute stories of the individuals, families, neighbors and heroes affected in addition to contributing their own tribute story or sharing the Remembrance Project through Facebook and Twitter. Leading the project, George Takei recounts his own first-hand internment camp experiences with a PSA video. Link, Visit Project >
