Never Give Up! Min Yasui and the Fight for Justice

Narrated by George Takei, “Never Give Up! Minoru Yasui and the Fight for Justice” tells the story of Minoru (Min) Yasui, son of Japanese immigrant parents. Mr. Yasui was born in 1916 and raised in the farming community of Hood River, Oregon. He was the first Japanese American attorney in Oregon, and during World War II, he initiated the first legal test challenging the forced removal from the West Coast and subsequent incarceration of over 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry in U.S. concentration camps. The film documents his and his family‚Äôs experiences during the war and his nine months in solitary confinement awaiting his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court.
Doors open at 6:15 p.m. Discussion following film featuring filmmaker Holly Yasui. Beer, beverages and snacks available for purchase.
