Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community

Call for Testimony to Support House Resolution 40

BIJAC is providing this information on behalf of Tsuru for Solidarity.

Recently Tsuru for Solidarity was asked to solicit testimony from Japanese Americans in support of HR 40 for the House Judiciary Subcommittee on Constitution, Civil Rights, and Civil Liberties. The hearing is mid-February, so we apologize that this call is coming with such short notice. Written testimony should be emailed to by 2/12 @ 12pm PST.

Because of the short notice, we wanted to prepare as much information as possible up front, including information on HR 40 and guidance for the written testimony. Please find links to materials here:
