All grants are for the purpose of establishing a legacy of remembrance as part of a continuing process of recovery from the World War II exclusion, forced removal, and incarceration of individuals of Japanese ancestry.
The Kip Tokuda Memorial program is created to do one or both of the following:
- Educate the public regarding the history and the lessons of the World War II exclusion, removal, and incarceration of persons of Japanese ancestry through the development, coordination, and distribution of new educational materials and the development of curriculum materials to complement and augment resources currently available on this subject matter; and
- Develop videos, plays, presentations, speaker bureaus, and exhibitions for presentation to elementary schools, secondary schools, community colleges, and other interested parties.
The resources and materials created through the grant are intended to ensure that the World War II exclusion, forced removal, and incarceration of individuals of Japanese ancestry will be remembered, and the causes and circumstances of this and similar events will be addressed and understood.
