The 20th Annual National Cherry Blossom Freedom Walk will be held on Saturday, April 7, 2018. A short, non-competitive walk and program to celebrate and learn about the Japanese American spirit of patriotism and perseverance during World War II. This year’s program will highlight our 20th anniversary as well as the 30th anniversary of passage of the Civil Liberties Act of 1988. This year’s theme is “E Pluribus Unum – Out of Many, One” and while we celebrate the motto of our founding fathers, it is also a reminder to that we must continue to stand with others in protecting civil liberties for all Americans.
