On September 17, 1987, we celebrated the
passage of HR 442, the Civil Liberties Act of
1987. The U.S. Senate adopted a similar
measure in April 1988, providing an
apology and remedy for the internment.
While the JACL conducted a legislative
campaign, attorneys petitioned to reopen
the wartime Supreme Court cases of Minoru
Yasui, Gordon Hirabayashi and Fred
Korematsu. Court decisions in California,
Oregon and Washington, dismissed the
1942 convictions and acknowledged
government misconduct.
We invite you to join us on June 30, 1988
to acknowledge the efforts of the many
individuals who have contributed to our
achievements and to celebrate our
contributions to The American Promise.

THE AMERICAN PROMISE
By the President of the United States of America
A Proclamation
I, Gerald R. Ford, President of the United States
of America, do hereby proclaim that all the authority
conferred by Executive Order 9066 terminated upon
the issuance of Proclamation No. 2714, which formal-
ly proclaimed the cessation of the hostilities of World
War II on December 31, 1946.
I call upon the American people to affirm with
me this American Promise that we have learned
from the tragedy of that long-ago experience forever
to treasure liberty and justice for each individual
American and resolve that this kind of action shall
never again be repeated.
In witness whereof, I have hereunto set my hand
this nineteenth day of February in the year of our
Lord hundred seventy-six and of the independence of
the United States of America the two hundredth.
Gerald R. Ford
