At the July Mt Baker Meaningful Movie screening of Never Give Up: Minoru Yasui and the Fight For Justice, an announcement was made about Tsuru for Solidarity in Seattle.

The inaugural meeting of the Seattle chapter of Tsuru for Solidarity will be on November 16th. This organization is a nonviolent, direct action project of Japanese American social justice advocates and their allies working to end detention sites and support front-line immigrant and refugee communities that are being targeted by racist, inhumane immigration policies.

At this meeting, organizers will give an overview of Tsuru for Solidarity’s objectives, hear from targeted members of our community, and create working groups for local and national actions.

If you’re interested in participating but aren’t able to attend the event on the 16th, please email

Please also sign up for emails from the national Tsuru for Solidarity group so that you can hear the latest about national actions:

SSCAN supports Tsuru for Solidarity and other organizations working for systemic change because we recognize that the same values that lead to racist, inhumane immigration policies are also leading to climate change and environmental destruction.
