Community Alliance Film and Discussion: Then They Came For Me
Join us to watch short film clips about ethnic groups targeted for discrimination and internment during World War II.
Following the film there will be a panel discussion on the topic featuring:
--Velio (Al) Bronzini was born in Oakland to Italian immigrants and vividly recalls the devastating restrictions placed on his family during WWII. He now lives in Castro Valley.
--Hiroshi Shimizu was born during the war in the Central Utah Relozation Center. His San Francisco family was later sent to the Tule Lake Segregation Center.
--Ashley Morris a local ACLU Organizing Director.
We welcome a frank, honest, and respectful dialogue among community members ages 11 and up about the experiences of targeted groups.
This is a program of the Castro Valley Community Alliance. For more information about the Community Alliance click here.
