Fourteenth Annual Vancouver



The Wallenberg-Sugihara Civil Courage Award will be presented to Keiko Mary Kitagawa, a leader in the effort to raise awareness of the injustices suffered by Japanese-Canadians during the Second World War.  Overcoming indifference and discrimination, she has helped to ensure that this history is recognized and taught to future generations.  Her persistent efforts persuaded UBC in 2012 to present honorary degrees to the 76 Japanese-Canadian students who were interned in 1942 and prevented from completing their degrees.
