Her expertise and findings provided much of the documentary evidence that formed the basis of\nthe landmark 1987 co ram nobis cases of Gordon Hirabayashi\, Fred Koramatsu\, and Minoru Yasui\ ; and the National Council for Japanese Americans\nRedress (NCJAR) lawsuit of 1983. Anchored by the unique friendship between Yoshinaga and the dire ctor's own mother\, "Rebel With a Cause" offers an intimate portrait of an unassuming woman and her impact on a national movement.&nbsp\; FREE event \, but please be sure to RSVP with the GVJCI at (310) 324-6611 or info@jci DTSTAMP:20231206T020359Z SUMMARY:"Rebel With A Cause: The Life of Aiko Herzig Yoshinaga" URL:/en/events/2017/10/14/rebel-with-a-cause-the-life-of-aiko-herzig-yosh/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
