Washington State Legislature - Day of Remembrance

Washington State Legislature – Please join the Washington State Legislature in a virtual observance of the Day of Remembrance on Monday, February 15, 2021 starting at 8:30 am PST.

This annual ceremony marking the anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066, which led to the incarceration of more than 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry, will commence in the House of Representatives on Monday. The Senate will conclude the observance on the nationally and state recognized Day of Remembrance, Friday, February 19, 2021, at 12:30pm.

View the virtual observance of the Day of Remembrance, marking the anniversary of Executive Order 9066.  This will be lived streamed from the floor of Washington State Legislature on the TVW channel. The NVC Color Guard will present the colors via a pre-recorded video.

At a time when being together feels especially needed, we are disappointed that we cannot gather together in person this year to commemorate the Day of Remembrance. Nevertheless, we remain grateful for the honor of recognizing the history of heroism and resilience in our Nikkei community.

Both proceedings will to be live streamed on the TVW Website.
