Japanese Americans and AAPI Civil Rights Movement Past and Present – Online Live Panel Discussion
Japan Week 2021 Zoom Seminar – co-hosted by Japan Week 2020
Misa Murohashi, General Manager of North American Post Publishing Inc.
Stanley Shikuma, President of JACL Seattle Chapter, and Elaine Ikoma Ko, Board of Interim CDA, will serve as panelists for this engaging online event that will highlight the history of Asian American civil rights movement, community empowerment, and civic engagement activities in the Seattle area.
The Asian American community in the Seattle area began as early as 1860 with early immigrant settlers who came and raised families such that today, up to five generations call Seattle home. Up until the 1960’s, restrictive immigration and discriminatory land laws kept Asian immigrants from naturalization and land ownership and many other forms of racism and discrimination existed. Today, discrimination and racism targeting Asians continue, decades later.
In the early 1970’s, inspired by the civil rights movement primarily led by the Black community, Asian Americans began to organize and speak out against racism, discrimination, and to preserve the historic International District community. Unique to Seattle, Japanese, Chinese and Filipino activists came together to build Pan-Asian unity, and other communities also joined forces. For example, protests against building of the Kingdome in the International District starting in the early 1970’s became a broad movement that pushed local legislators to fund community-based health and human services. Many successful AAPI organizations today directly or indirectly grew out of the movement in the 1970’s. The Japanese American commnity actively led the efforts for reparations for Japanese Americans sent to internment camps during WWII and continues activism in social justice efforts today.
During the session, we will discuss the significance of the organizing movements in the 1970’s and what we can learn for present days. Q& A session will follow after the panel. This is interactive online session and registered event attendees may join the Q&A session on the zoom meeting.

Seattle Welcomes Norman Mineta
The Pacific Northwest has a unique opportunity to meet a man of many “firsts” in American politics. Norman Mineta was the first Asian American elected mayor of a large U.S. city and the first Asian American elected member of Congress from the U.S. mainland. He was also the first person to serve as a cabinet member under both a Democratic (Bill Clinton) and Republican (George W. Bush) president.
Mineta will accompany the recently-released documentary, “Norman Mineta and His Legacy: An American Story” in a special screening in Seattle during the Veteran’s Day weekend. During the Cold War and before beginning his political career, he served in an intelligence unit of the U.S. Army. The hour-long film details his modest upbringing and his family’s removal to a World War II mass-incarceration camp. In Congress he was instrumental in achieving Japanese American redress through the passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988. Particularly notable are his past and ongoing efforts to seek justice for all – especially aspiring and new arrivals struggling to survive by migrating to the United States. Remaining faithful to his personal history and his identity as the son of immigrants will certainly stand out as major themes of Mineta’s enduring legacy.
