I plan to have a PPT and share updates on the Maritime/Place-Based programming and the Elementary School Construction. 
My presentation will be the story of my family, immigration, racial prejudice, the power of words, the all Nisei 442nd Regimental Combat Unit, honor, and patriotism. I conclude with why does this matter today as it is important to understand how racial discrimination led to the incarceration of 120,000 people of Japanese descent. How does a democracy weigh civil liberties vs. national security? How does a democracy make good decisions living with the threat of terrorism? When, if ever, should we deny American citizens their constitutional rights? With the recent Supreme Court decision on the Korematsu case, it seems we go one step forward and then take another step back with the blessing for the Muslim Ban!
 Student for the 2017-2018 school year, has returned home to Port Townsend. Elias will give a presentation on his experience as a Rotary Youth Exchange student living in Zaragoza, Spain over the past year. ”
