Yuri Kochiyama was born in 1921 in California to Japanese immigrants. She was interned along with members of her family and tens of thousands of other Japanese-Americans during World War II. Although she has been described as a woman of complicated (and sometimes controversial) political beliefs, she and her husband, Bill — a Nisei soldier who fought for the U.S. during the war — were in the vanguard of countless civil-rights and social-justice battles spanning six decades. She advocated for reparations and a government apology for the incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II and founded the Day of Remembrance Committee in New York City to commemorate the day President Franklin D. Roosevelt authorized Executive Order 9066, which caused the forced removal and incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II. In later years, Kochiyama was active in opposing profiling of and bigotry against Muslims, Middle Easterners, and South Asians in the United States, a phenomenon she viewed as similar to the experience of Japanese Americans during World War II. And that’s an Asian person you should know. #yurikochiyama #apahm #asianamerican #asianamericanheritagemonth #asianamericanwomen #asianpersonyoushouldknow
