In 1988, Congress passed, and President Ronald Reagan signed the Civil Liberties Act, a historic piece of legislation that sought, for the first time, to provide a measure of justice to Japanese Americans nearly 40 years after their incarceration during World War II. The Office of Redress Administration was established to process payments and apology letters to Japanese Americans interned, finding over 48,000 eligible persons and securing funding for the payments. The Office of Redress Administration (ORA) Oral History Project is an effort to capture and preserve the first person recollections of those tasked with carrying out this historic government program, as well as the community leaders that made it possible. ASF sat down in a discussion with the leaders of the Oral History Project: Emi Kuboyama from the Graduate School of Education, Todd Holmes from UC Berkeley and Jon Ayon, a filmmaker from Los Angeles.
