The Fresno Area Stanford Alumni club is proud to present a talk by member Judge Dale Ikeda, as he shares his captivating presentation on a local historical event. 

In July of 1942, Executive Order No. 9066 was enacted to forcibly detain over 120,000 Americans of Japanese ancestry for over three years during World War II.  During the war, two camps were established in Fresno: the Fresno Assembly Center and the Pinedale Assembly Center. Since October 1, 2018, Judge Ikeda has served by appointment from the government of Japan as Honorary Consul of Japan in Fresno, and he engages with that role in many ways, including but not limited to, sharing the culture of Japanese Americans. Judge Ikeda will speak about the impact of Executive Order No. 9066 in the Central Valley of California, and how lessons from this time in our country’s recent history can be applied to current events.
