Fighting for Democracy Day 1: Introduction

Our upcoming exhibit Fighting for Democracy: Who is the “We” in “We the People?” opens on Saturday, January 19th. 

This exhibit, which originated at The National
Center for the Preservation of Democracy in Los Angelesexplores and exposes the important efforts made by minorities during World War II. 
In the lead up to the opening, each day we’re profiling one of the seven individuals featured in the exhibit on this blog.  We'll introduce them, their roles in the war, as well as give context for how their story reflects not only an American story but sheds light on the fight for true democracy here at home.

In the meantime, we invite you to share your thoughts and reactions on our Facebook and Twitter accounts.  Do you have any stories to share? 

What do you think of when you hear the word “we” in “We the people”?
