“We are at another moment when advocacy and political involvement are essential to the future of our nation. Our democratic system only works when we actively participate in the process. All of us.”

When World War II broke out 75 years ago, more than 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry were stripped of their rights and were imprisoned in ten barbwire-enclosed internment camps. George Takei and his family were among those interned—first at Camp Rohwer in the swamps of Arkansas, and then at the wind-swept Camp Tule Lake in northern California.

The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) were among the few groups to publicly support them. Today, Quakers through the Friends Committee on National Legislation continue to advocate for peace, social justice, and rebuilding our democracy.

“I hope that you will consider joining the Quaker lobby in Washington, the Friends Committee on National legislation …FCNL will help you find your voice, they will help you to be an effective advocate for justice as an essential part of the movement to reclaim our democratic system. Get involved.”
