SAN FRANCISCO — “And Then They Came for Us,” a documentary by Abby Ginzberg and Ken Schneider, will be screened on Thursday, Nov. 1, at 5:30 p.m. at The Bar Association of San Francisco, 301 Battery St., Third Floor, in San Francisco.
Winner of the ABA 2018 Silver Gavel Award for Documentaries, this groundbreaking film covers the forced incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II, the parallels with the Muslim travel bans, and the dangers of unchecked executive power on actions implicating civil liberties.

Tamaki, partner at Minami Tamaki LLP and member of Fred Korematsu’s coram nobis legal team; and Hamid Yazdan Panah, attorney and regional director for Northern California Rapid Response & Immigration Defense Network.
