The Seventh Chicago-Area All-Camps Reunion will be held on Sunday, April 28, 2019 from 2:30pm to 5pm at the Japanese American Service Committee (4427 N. Clark Street, Chicago, IL 60640). 

This program is free and open to the public, and there is ample parking with a number of accessible parking spaces.

At this event we invite all Japanese Americans and their families who had experienced the incarceration/internment process during World War II to reunite and to reconnect as we reflect on the past and the present.

This year we will have a roundtable discussion with former incarcerees, the screening of a short documentary on the incarceration and resettlement process drawing from the joint Japanese American Service Committee and Chicago Japanese American Historical Society oral history project, along with other musical entertainment.

This event is co-sponsored by the Chicago Japanese American Historical Society, JACL - Chicago Chapter, Japanese American Service Committee, and the Japanese Mutual Aid Society of Chicago.
