California State University Japanese American Digitization Project: An Exhibit


The redress movement refers to efforts to obtain restitution of civil rights, an apology, and/or monetary compensation from the U.S. government during the decades that followed the World War II mass removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans. Beyond the fight for recognition and redress from the U.S. government, Japanese Americans have also fought on a personal level and collectively to ensure that this dark period in American History is remembered so that future generations will have the opportunity to learn about this incarceration of American citizens. Redress resulted in each living former prisoner receiving $20,000.
