Take Action

Aside from documenting a nearly forgotten story from World War II, Prisoners and Patriots raises contemporary concerns about civil rights — particularly during war time, immigration, discrimination, religious freedom, citizenship, homeland security and foreign policy.

You can help raise awareness and educate others by hosting a house party to watch and discuss the movie. Invite teachers, elected officials and other community influencers and members of the Anti-Defamation League, American Civil Liberties Union, Japanese American Citizens League so everyone can benefit from learning lessons provided by history.

You can help by calling Congress and tell your Senators and Representatives to support Senate Bill 64, the Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Latin Americans of Japanese Descent Act. Several members of the United States Congress, including Senator Daniel Inouye of Hawaii and Representative Xavier Becerra of California, have introduced this legislation in the past to establish a commission to produce a definitive government report on how the United States arrested Japanese-Latin American citizens and held them in U.S. internment camps.
