Enduring Democracy: The Monterey Petition

The Japanese American Citizens League of the Monterey Peninsula and the Monterey Public Library proudly presents the documentary, Enduring Democracy: The Monterey Petition. Enduring Democracy is a documentary that examines how Monterey was one of the only communities that publicly welcomed their Japanese neighbors back from the incarceration centers after World War II. Following the showing, there will be a panel of four distinguished local historians, David Yamada, Sandy Lydon, Geoffery Dunn and Tim Thomas to discuss the history and significance of the Japanese on the Monterey Peninsula. The film will be shown on Saturday April 9th, 2:00pm at the JACL Hall. Reservation is required. For questions and registrations, please RSVP to timsardine@yahoo.com or 831-521-3304.
