WORLD AFFAIRS COUNCIL: Documentary Film Night | And Then They Came For Us

CONVENERS.ORG MEMBER EVENT
Join us for this special screening of the documentary “And Then They Came For Us”, in partnership with the United Nations Association Film Festival (UNAFF) as UNAFF kicks off its 20th Annual Film Festival.
Seventy-five years ago, Executive Order 9066 paved the way to the profound violation of constitutional rights that resulted in the forced incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans. Featuring George Takei and many others who were incarcerated, as well as newly rediscovered photographs of Dorothea Lange, this riviting film brings history into the present, retelling this difficult story and following Japanese American activists as they speak out against the Muslim registry and travel ban. Knowing our history is the first step to ensuring we do not repeat it.
