ACS Columbus: "And Then They Came for Us": Fred Korematsu and His Fight for Justice


Please join the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Central Ohio, the ACS Columbus Lawyer Chapter, and Bricker & Eckler LLP for a film screening of And Then They Came for Us, the story of Fred Korematsu and his infamous U.S. Supreme Court case. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion on the lessons of Korematsu's struggle in a post-9/11 world: that our rights must be vigilantly protected, and that claims of national security should not exempt decision-makers from being held accountable.

Featuring:

Karen Korematsu, Founder and Executive Director, The Fred T. Korematsu Institute

Donald Tamaki, Partner, Minami Tamaki LLP

Registration and networking will begin at 4:30 p.m. The film screening will begin at 5:15 p.m., followed by a panel discussion from 6:30 p.m - 7:00 p.m.

Cocktails and movie snacks will be served throughout the event.
