Workshop on Xenophobia: From Japanese American Incarceration to Immigrant Detention Today

by Barbara Yasui
May 2020, Volume 70, Issue 5

The Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Washington and Densho are sponsoring a free, 2-hour, online teach-in, "Xenophobia:  From Japanese American Incarceration to Immigrant Detention Today."  This workshop will deepen your understanding of American xenophobia and racism, using Japanese American WWII incarceration and the current crisis of immigrant detention as case studies.

The workshop is designed for teachers, high school or college students, community leaders, and individuals simply looking to expand their knowledge and deepen their commitment to action. The teach-in will use a combination of short films and oral histories, as well as creative learning routines and dialogue.

Educators will come away with activities and curriculum that can be directly applied to the classroom.  Priority will be given to Washington State teachers.  Participants will receive a $100 stipend upon completion of the workshop and a post-workshop survey.

This workshop is funded through a grant from the Kip Tokuda Memorial Civil Liberties Public Education Program.
