Rose Pritchett, an artist-in-residence at Menlo College, told ESJF that the attendance numbers for their panel were among the largest ever for a presentation at Menlo College. There were over 50 people there, including students, professors, the college president Steven Weiner, college board members, and folks from the surrounding communities.
On Friday, 11/10, Sung Sohn attended the 90th birthday celebration of Grandma Lee and delivered birthday messages from Mike Honda, Eric Mar, and ESJF, which was the only organization to attend from SF.
Grandma Lee was moved by the birthday messages from all of us from ESJF as Sohn read them.
Big thank you goes to the teachers who sang her a birthday song at the T4SJ workshop last month. The recorded song was received very warmly.
At the rally, Mike Honda (center) stated that young students, such as the ones who participated on the 7th, inspire people around the world to bring justice to the victims of Japanese military sexual slavery, adding that this activism can restore the victims’ stolen youth.
