CSU Northridge Relief and Support Groups for Japanese Americans During World War II Collection

Call for college students to meet a "desperate need" by serving as group work leaders supporting community activities, arts and recreation, church vacation Bible schools, and boys and girls clubs in either the Gila River or Manzanar Incarceration Camp; flier states that such service would provide the students with the opportunity to "serve significantly in these tragic days"; "come to know these Americans of Japanese descent -- our 'war victims' -- as persons" and to "think and work constructively on the number one question of America and her minorities." Flier mentions supervision by graduate counselors, with "continuous sympathetic help" from War Relocation Authority staff, and the possibility that similar projects may arise in the Topaz, Utah and Poston, Arizona "Relocation Centers."
