The Commission on Wartime Relocation and Internment of Civilians (CWRIC) was created by an act of Congress on July 30, 1980. The committee was formed mainly to investigate matters surrounding the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans and to recommend remedies. The CWRIC had no power to correct grievances. The hearings were conducted in twenty cities, including Seattle, Washington, beginning in 1981.
