Postponed:Tsuru for Solidarity Fold-in

March 26 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Free

Sonoma County Japanese American Citizens League

in partnership with

United In Kindness and the Interfaith Council of Sonoma County

presents:

Tsuru for Solidarity Fold-in

Join us for 1 hour to hear a presentation and then together learn and fold cranes. It is a contemplative way to take action and speak for the voiceless.

 

Tsuru for Solidarity is a nonviolent, direct action project of Japanese American social justice

advocates working to end detention sites and support front-line immigrant and refugee

communities that are being targeted by racist, inhumane immigration policies. Standing on the

moral authority of the unjust incarceration of Japanese Americans and legacy of U.S.

concentration camps during WWII, we say, “Stop Repeating History!” We demand that no

matter where someone came from or how they arrived to the United States, they be treated

with dignity and respect.

Our mission is to:

● Educate, advocate, and protest for closure of all concentration camps in the USA

● Build solidarity with Sonoma County’s diverse communities, especially those who have

experienced forced removal, detention, deportation and separation of families

● Coordinate intergenerational, cross-community healing circles addressing the

trauma and injustice of confining minorities, deporting and breaking up families

 

TSURU means crane in Japanese, and symbolizes peace, compassion, hope and healing.

Show your solidarity with our cause by using the traditional Japanese folk art of paper folding

(origami) to fold a paper crane.
