Tule Lake Unit Public Meeting

Wednesday, January 18 from 6:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m.

Japanese American Association – 49 W. 45th Street (between 5th and 6th Avenues), 11th floor

Admission: Free

The Japanese American Association of New York, in cooperation with the Wing Luke Museum of the Asian Pacific American Experience, is hosting a video presentation of the National Park Service’s proposals for the Tule Lake site, one of ten internment camps where Japanese Americans were imprisoned during World War II.

NPS is offering the Tule Lake Unit of World War II Valor in the Pacific National Monument General Management Plan and Environmental Assessment to the public for review and comment to help influence the future of the Tule Lake Unit. Full text of the proposal is available on NPS’s website. Park officials are particularly interested in Plan C, which proposes a visitors’ center and focuses on the unique history of Tule Lake, which served as a “segregation center” to incarcerate internees who were considered loyal to Japan.

The presentation originates from the Wing Luke Museum in Seattle, and the audience at JAA can ask questions during the presentation. Those who are interested but unable to attend can access the meeting online through GoToMeeting.
