New effort to honor Mitsuye Endo

A petition is circulating to honor Mitsuye Endo, calling on the White House to award her the Presidential Medal of Freedom for sacrificing years of her life in a legal challenge against the U.S. government that led to a Supreme Court victory. Her case forced the U.S. to release American citizens and others of Japanese ancestry from the U.S. government's World War II concentration camps. December 2024 will mark the 80th anniversary of the Supreme Court decision.
