On April 25, 1942, a thousand Japanese from the Venice area were ordered to assemble at the corner of Venice and Lincoln Blvds. and then were taken to the Manzanar Concentration Camp for the remained of World War II. Most were American citizens who rights were blatantly disregarded.

Shortly after the shocking events of Sept. 11, 2001, U.S. invaded Afghanistan in 2001, established illegal extraordinary rendition and secret prisons around the world for foreign nationals and citizens, alike, condoned and used torture and passed the Patriot Act which took rights away from all Americans.

The Venice Peace and Freedom Party felt that the horrific treatment of the 120,000 Japanese who were incarcerated during WW II, was returning in the treatment of arabs. They resolved to circulate a petition, which was signed by thousands of Venice residents, calling for a memorial to the Japanese roundup.

It took until 2017 for the monument, at the same street corner, to become a reality. It stands as a permanent reminder of the unjust treatment to Japanese families and as a beacon for the ever present need for human rights for all people. The monument is there now. Go visit it at the corner of Venice and Lincoln.
