      Dr. Satsuki Ina Talk and Film Screening "AND THEN THEY CAME FOR US"

      Film Screening and Talk with Filmmaker and Social Justice Activist Satsuki Ina shares her insight as social justice activist and her pioneering work as filmmaker, producer, writer and clinical psychologist.
      As we commemorate the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066 which was signed by President Roosevelt on Feb. 19, 1942, the film documents through the use of photos taken by Dorothea Lange and others, the damage this order did to 120,000 people, two thirds of whom were American citizens. Featuring George Takei and many others who were incarcerated, And Then They Came for Us, demonstrates the importance of speaking up and serves as a cautionary tale.
      Dr. Ina is Professor Emeritus in the School of Education at California State University, Sacramento. She was born in the Tule Lake Segregation Center, an American concentration camp, during WWII. As a licensed psychotherapist, her primary clinical work has focused on intergenerational families struggling with legacies of trauma. Her research on the long-term impact of the WWII incarceration on the Japanese American family, has led her to produce two award winning documentary films, Children of the Camps, and From A Silk Cocoon. Both documentaries have been broadcast nationally on PBS. She is a community activist, educator, and spokesperson advocating for social justice. She currently continues her psychotherapy practice in Berkeley, California, addressing issues of community and historical trauma.
