25th Anniversary of U.S. v. Hirabayashi Coram Nobis
Location: Campion Ballroom; Reception following will be in Sullivan Hall, 2nd Floor Gallery
The conference, to be held on Saturday, February 11, 2012, at Campion Ballroom on the Seattle University campus, will celebrate Mr. Hirabayashi's courage in resisting military orders that culminated in the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II; reflect on his 1943 Supreme Court case that upheld his convictions and the extraordinary work of his legal team in reopening of his case nearly 40 years later; and use his case as a springboard to move forward in the struggle for civil rights.
