For the second year, APALSA is honored to host the Honorable Judge Denny Chin of the Second Circuit for a reenactment of a key trial that shaped Asian American history. The reenactments were developed by the Asian American Bar Association of New York (AABANY), under the leadership of Judge Denny Chin and Kathy Hirata Chin. Professors, administrators, and students will bring to life a trial which raised questions about achieving genuine racial justice in our legal system—all of which are still relevant today.
We will be presenting Heart Mountain, a story of the re-imposition of the draft on Japanese- American citizens interned in concentration camps during the Second World War.
