Remembering History. Empowering the Next Generation.
Each year, the Gardena Valley Japanese Cultural Institute (GVJCI) holds its annual Day of Remembrance (DOR) which commemorates the incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII. A different theme and related film is selected each year, and a panel of experts is carefully selected to help further educate the community on the events, experiences, and lessons that should be learned from this time in American history. The GVJCI and the DOR Committee are so grateful for the tremendous support shown by the community each year and hope our DOR program continues to educate and motivate all people to speak out against injustice in all its forms.
