Conscience and the Constitution

Long before the war protests of the 1960s, more than 300 Japanese-Americans organized a draft resistance to protest the internment of their families during World War II. The government launched the largest draft resistance trial in U.S. history, imprisoning them for two years. Their story is chronicled in the documentary Conscience and the Constitution, which premieres in Sacramento Sunday, Nov. 19, at the Sacramento City College Center. Director Frank Abe and a panel of wartime resistors will be on hand for a post-film discussion. The free event begins at 2 p.m. Call 978-6120 ext. 40 for more information.
