Alternative Facts Panel Discussion and Screening

July 14, 2020
2:30 - 3:30 p.m.


Please join the ACS Columbus Lawyer Chapter and the Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Central Ohio for a panel discussion and screening of ALTERNATIVE FACTS: The Lies of Executive Order 9066. ALTERNATIVE FACTS tells the story of false information and political influence that led to the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans and the Supreme Court case of Korematsu, the case of Korematsu, a horrifically-decided case that upheld the constitutionality of the internment of Japanese-Americans. It also examines the parallels to the targeting of minority groups today and similar attempts to abuse the powers of government.

Anna Sanyal, Member, ACS Columbus Lawyer Chapter Board of Directors and Immediate Past President, Asian Pacific American Bar Association of Central Ohio

The Honorable Edward M. Chen, District Judge, U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California
Donald K. Tamaki, Managing Partner, Minami Tamaki
