This webinar is part of the History You Missed series that covers topics often left out of history texts and classes. We will discuss Japanese internment during World War II and the treatment of Japanese Americans by the United States and neighboring nations. It will highlight that some camps was international, housing people from Mexico and Central America who detained people of Japanese descent at the urging of the United States government and then shipped them north where they remained for the duration of the war. Going back to the Chinese Exclusion Act, it will focus on how differently immigrants arriving to Angel Island in California were treated compared to those arriving at Ellis Island in New York and how that impacted the decision for internment. Is your organization ready to become radically inclusive, but you aren't sure how to get there? Our Classes for Transformation will guide your community to open to the spirit of transformation. Each session will include an interactive program that will lead to deeper discussions and greater connections within your community - not to take a single vote, but to a place where continuing metamorphosis can happen.
