Never Again: Japanese American WWII History and American Muslim Rights Today at Fisher Pavilion in Seattle, WA on Sun Feb 19, 2-3:30 pm - Seattle Resistance & Solidarity Events Calendar - The Stranger

thestranger.com

"A new slogan has been cropping up in protests across the nation: "Never Again Is Now." Never Again: Japanese American WWII History and American Muslim Rights Today means to expand on that catchphrase and explain how 120,000 Japanese Americans were detained during WWII, and why civil rights advocates and Muslim citizens are so concerned that "Never Again" will prove a false promise. On the anniversary of the internment order of 1942, Densho's executive director Tom Ikeda and the Council on American-Islamic Relations' Washington director Arsalan Bukhari will give a joint presentation. They'll speak on history and "what Seattleites can do to prevent harassment and discrimination of American Muslims in their community."

Meet Serve Local Ambassador of the Week, David! https://orgsync.com/135108/news_posts/202463

What about service makes you happy? "I like getting to listen and learn about the people in my community. We live in such a cool and diverse place and everyone I meet has had such a different life. The more I listen and get to know these stories, these people, the better I can understand not only my community, but the human experience as a whole. Forming these bonds with my community members gives me a more inclusive perspective of the world and a more realistic sense of my place in it and what I can do to make a difference."
