Speaker Series: CA State Government and Incarceration of Japanese Americans During World War II

In 1942, President Roosevelt issued Executive Order 9066, which allowed for the Secretary of War to create military zones from which certain groups would be excluded. These federal orders lead to the eventual incarceration of 120,000 people of Japanese descent for the duration of World War II. However, exclusionary laws existed in the state of California before that, and more were passed immediately leading up to and during incarceration.
