Beginning at 10 a.m. workshops will have discussions entitled “Activism in the Great Recession,” “LGBT[JA]Q,” Educate to Transform,” “Preserving the Past; Envisioning the Future” and “From the Camps to Redress and 9/11.” Preregistration is open through Oct. 31; $5, available online or by mail. On-site registration is $10. Registration includes lunch. Payments should be made to the Japanese American Historical Society of Southern California.
