Japantown community to hold peaceful gathering against hate

A peace rally is being held Tuesday evening in Japantown, to “address the hateful rhetoric of the presidential election, and to show solidarity with segments of communities now being targeted nationwide by incidents of hate.”

“As a community that knows all too well the effects of wartime hysteria, racial prejudice and the failure of political leadership, the Japanese American community responds, using our own experience as a stark reminder of the effects of the deprivation of civil liberties,” read a statement by the Bay Area Day of Remembrance Consortium.

A number of community organizations and leaders will be in attendance, including Assemblymember David Chiu and S.F. Public Defender Jeff Adachi. The gathering will take place Tuesday evening at 6 p.m., in the Peace Plaza in Japantown.David ChiuJapantownJeff Adachipeace rally
