Your Call Live, June 6: When fear threatens civil liberties
Join Your Call’s next live show Thursday, June 6, 6 p.m. at Stage Werx for a discussion on building solidarity to protect civil rights and liberties. Host Rose Aguilar will be in conversation with attorney Don Tamaki who served on the Korematsu v. the United States case, law professor Bill Ong Hing, and Leila Sayed-Taha of the Arab Resource and Organizing Center. The event is free. Reserve your tickets on Eventbrite.
As part of our series “HEAR: Histories of Exclusion and Resistance” we’ve discussed the echoes of Japanese American internment in modern policies and rhetoric. Join us for a conversation about building solidarity across communities to protect civil rights and liberties for everyone. How are scholars, activists and historians mobilizing to address policies like immigration detention, the proposed census citizenship question, and the travel ban?
HEAR is made possible by funding from the California State Library's California Civil Liberties Public Education Program.
