When she was just 7 months old, Marge Taniwaki and her family were sent to live in Manzanar, a Japanese internment camp in California. Her earliest memories include watching a guard on duty in one of the watchtowers surrounding the camp as he held a rifle with fixed bayonet. Marge has made it her purpose to speak the truth regarding the racist and selective imprisonment of over 120,000 people of Japanese ancestry, two-thirds of whom were U.S. citizens.

Marge’s current activism includes restoration work at the Amache WWII Concentration Camp in far southeastern Colorado. More information on Amache is available at www.amache.org.
