1000 Cranes: Solidarity, Vigilance & Peace

  • Venice Japanese American Memorial Monument Northwest Corner of Venice and Lincoln (map)

Stand with us in solidarity against racial prejudice and injustices. The 16th Anniversary of 9/11 and the 75th Anniversary of the signing of Executive Order 9066, are poignant reminders to remain vigilant and speak out against xenophobic rhetoric and actions. 

A special presentation of 1,000 cranes will be presented to the King Fahad Mosque of Culver City as a symbol of friendship and community solidarity against racial prejudice, islamophobia and injustices. Featured keynote speakers are community activist and former Assemblymember Warren Furutani and Tanzila "Taz" Ahmed, Muslim American Activist and co-creator of the podcast #GoodMuslimBadMuslim.

The program will take place at the Venice Japanese American Venice Memorial Monument (at the corner of Venice and Lincoln Boulevard), the site of where 1,000 persons of Japanese ancestry from Venice, Santa Monica, and Malibu, reported to after being forcibly removed from their homes. They were then sent directly to the Manzanar incarceration camp during World War II.

This event is made possible by our partners: Camp Musubi, UCLA Asian American Studies Center, Venice Japanese American Memorial Monument Committee, Los Angeles City Councilmember Mike Bonin.
