Tsuru for Solidary
This event will be rescheduled. Please check back at a later time.
Tsuru for Solidarity is a nonviolent, direct action project of Japanese American social justice advocates working to end detention sites and support front-line immigrant and refugee communities that are being targeted by racist, inhumane immigration policies. We stand on the moral authority of Japanese Americans who suffered the atrocities and legacy of U.S. concentration camps during WWII and we say, “Stop Repeating History!”
Show your solidarity with our cause by using the traditional Japanese folk art, origami, to contribute to the 125,000 paper cranes for a June 5-7 National Pilgrimage to Close the Camps event in Washington DC. The cranes – tsuru in Japanese – represent the 125,000 Japanese Americans and Japanese Latin American incarcerated in US concentration camps during WWII. Symbolically, they represent our solidarity with immigrants who, seeking a better life, are detained and/or separated from family.
Join us in making cranes!
Don’t know how? No worries. We will show you!
