The Nikkei for Civil Right and Redress (NCRR) is being honored at this year's Nisei Week Grand Parade in Little Tokyo for their years of commitment to redress and reparations and the battle for civil rights in this country. They are forming an NCRR contingent in the Nisei Week parade to carry these banners:

Home is Little Tokyo!
Peace & Justice
Civil Liberties for All
Stand Up for Justice!
Redress for Japanese Latin Americans
Nikkei for Civil Rights & Redress

The Nisei Week parade starts at 5:00 on Sunday, August 17th and winds through the heart of Little Tokyo. Join the celebration of our community and the enduring spirit of peace and social justice.

Also being honored is the dynamic 93-year old Fred Hoshiyama as the Parade's Grand Marshall.
