Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center says
In celebration of the historic bill passed unanimously by the Oregon Senate and House designating March 28 of each year as Minoru Yasui Day, we invite you to please join us on March 28, 2016 for the first Minoru Yasui Day honoring Minoru “Min” Yasui, the human and civil rights American hero who was posthumously awarded a 2015 Presidential Medal of Freedom, the highest civilian award in the country.

We will retrace Min’s historic walk by his law office in the Foster Hotel in Old Town Japantown, to the former site of Police Headquarters on SW 2nd Avenue and Oak Street.

Gather at Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center (121 NW 2nd Avenue) at 4:30pm for the short 6 block walk followed by a program in the foyer and reception in the offices of Stoll Berne at SW Second Avenue and Oak Street.

Presented by:
Minoru Yasui Tribute Committee
