 TEACH ABOUT FRED KOREMATSU DAY ON HIS BIRTHDAY, JANUARY 30TH

Fred Korematsu Day is celebrated on his birthday each year, January 30th.  This is a good time to connect Fred’s story with other civil rights champions, examine key civil liberties issues, and remember the stories of the 120,000 people (approximately 70% were American citizens) who were interned in concentration camps without due process of law
