Traveling exhibit Truth & Justice: Remembering "Comfort Women" at Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley, CA
The opening celebration of the traveling exhibit Truth & Justice: Remembering "Comfort Women" was held on March 5 at Pacific School of Religion. The ceremony was carried out as a service, which included beautiful performances and powerful prayers. Sung Sohn especially thought the prayer "I believe that the Spirit moves in acts of resistance to patriarchy, misogyny, white supremacy, and colonialism" was incredibly moving. The guests nodded in agreement when Sohn said, "As the number of survivors dwindles, the number of supporters of women’s human rights, peace, and justice will multiply and carry on the victims’ demands and hopes."
Flip Ahn Cuddy, a grandson of Dosan Ahn Chang Ho and a historian; Gordon Mar, SF City Supervisor; Eric Mar, Former SF City Supervisor and Asian American Studies Professor; and I wrote our support messages for this exhibit, which will be open until March 14 at the main building of Graduate Theological Union in Berkeley.
Kudos to the GTUKSA, who organized the exhibit and the opening ceremony!
