Monthly Free Meaningful Movie screening brought to you by Meaningful Movies Ridgefield presents, "Never Give Up! Minoru Yasui and the Fight for Justice which tells the story of Minoru (Min) Yasui, son of Japanese immigrant parents, born in 1916 and raised in the farming community of Hood River, Oregon. He was the first Japanese American attorney in Oregon, and during World War II, he initiated the first legal test challenging the forced removal from the West Coast and subsequent incarceration of over 120,000 persons of Japanese ancestry in U.S. concentration camps. The film documents his and his family’s experiences during the war and his nine months in solitary confinement awaiting his appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court." Holly Yasui, filmmaker and daughter of Minoru Yasui, will join us for the post film discussion. Please join us in welcoming Holly to Southwest Washington!
