The Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY) and the Asian Practice Committee of the New York County Lawyers Association invite you and your colleagues to a reenactment of Korematsu v. United States.

On February 19, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, uprooting some 120,000 Japanese-Americans – two-thirds of them American citizens – from their homes on the West Coast and forcing them into concentration camps.  Fred Korematsu refused to go.      

AABANY members, led by the Honorable Denny Chin of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit and Kathy Hirata Chin, Partner, Crowell & Moring, will tell the story of Fred Korematsu and his fight for justice through reenactment of court proceedings and historic documents and photographs.
