Schatz Introduces New Bill To Fund Education Of Japanese American Internment, Preserve Confinement Sites

“The internment of Japanese-American citizens remains one of the darkest and most shameful periods in our history. The stories of so many who unjustly lost their freedom, lost property and were forcibly uprooted from their homes should be a constant reminder of our duty to uphold the rights of every American,” said Senator Schatz. “This new bill would ensure that we continue to preserve internment sites and create a new grant program to educate more people about Japanese American confinement.”
