On September 20th, together with Representative Mike Honda, KACE hosted the 9th anniversary commemoration of H. Res. 121 of 2007, also known as the “Comfort Women” Resolution.
Introduced by Representative Honda and unanimously passed by the House of Representatives in July 2007, the resolution urges the government of Japan to formally acknowledge and unequivocally apologize for its imperial forces’ sexual enslavement of over 200,000 women during World War II.
Only a handful of victims survive, as similar crimes against humanity take place across the globe today.
We appreciate the courage of “comfort women” survivor Ms. Lee Yong-soo, leadership of Representative Honda, and continued support from Congressman Bill Pascrell, Jr., Representative Charles Rangel, Representative Ed Royce, and Representative Judy Chu in our standing up for human rights and history education.
