Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center says
Oregon Nikkei Endowment is proud to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of its Japanese American Historical Plaza and Bill of Rights Memorial. This FREE and OPEN to the public event will be held at the Plaza at the north end of the Portland’s Tom McCall Waterfront Park (NW Naito Parkway at Couch Street) on Sunday, August 2, from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m. The special keynote speaker is renowned actor and activist George Takei. Music will be provided by the Minidoka Swing Band.

Since 1990, the Plaza stands as a permanent memorial to the lives of Oregon Nikkei and their determined pursuit of liberty, equality, and justice as American citizens. According to Oregon Nikkei Endowment Executive Director Lynn Fuchigami Longfellow, “this award winning memorial pays tribute and recalls through artistic and poetic gesture the history of the Japanese American experience and the importance of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights.”
