Join Assemblymember Mike Eng, Secretary of State Debra Bowen, Mayor Kevin Johnson, former California Supreme Court Justice Cruz Reynoso, many statewide elected officials and over 45 civic rights organizations on December 6 at the CA State Railroad Museum for a "Day of Inclusion" enacted by California law in 2009 that in part states:
"WHEREAS, Despite the commitment of the United States to further racial, religious, and cultural tolerance, embodied by the repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, intolerance and discrimination against immigrants and minority groups persist, and the 66th anniversary of the repeal of the Chinese Exclusion Act of 1882, on December 17, 2009, represents a timely and excellent opportunity for our nation to rededicate itself to the eradication of intolerance and discrimination against immigrants and minority groups."
This one of two statewide events being held this year in response to new legislation that promotes inclusion and appreciation of California's immigrant heritage. For more information, see www.dayofinclusion.org
