Enduring Democracy: The Monterey Petition
The Monterey JACL Presents the Documentary Enduring Democracy
The Japanese American Citizens League of the Monterey Peninsula proudly presents the documentary, Enduring Democracy: The Monterey Petition.
Enduring Democracy is a documentary sponsored by the JACL of the Monterey Peninsula that examines how Monterey was one of the only communities that publicly welcomed their Japanese neighbors back from the incarceration centers after World War II. Not only is this of historical importance to the Japanese community and the Monterey Peninsula but it illustrates global themes of diversity, equity and inclusion.
