SF Board of Supes declare Jan. 30 Korematsu Day

The San Francisco Board of Supervisors on Jan. 25 passed a resolution unanimously declaring Jan. 30 Fred T. Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution, “to commemorate the spirit and meaning of Fred Korematsu’s life, and the importance of preserving and protecting our civil rights and liberties, even in times of real or perceived crisis,” a statement issued by Supervisor Eric Mar’s office, said.

Last year, then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed into law Assembly Bill 1775, which declared every forthcoming Jan. 30 Fred T. Korematsu Day of Civil Liberties and the Constitution, which is said to be the first day to be named in honor of an Asian American in U.S. history.
