Frank Abe: We Hereby Refuse
Past Event

Resisting and the Fight for Justice

Activist, writer, and film maker Frank Abe presents the history and inspiration for his graphic novel, We Hereby Refuse and his documentary film, Conscience and the Constitution. Abe’s projects give voice to the stories of Japanese American wartime resisters who challenged the constitutionality of their imprisonment in concentration camps, being called up for the draft, and the suspension of their civil liberties.



BIMA is following the COVID-19 recommendations and guidance from Kitsap Public Health District, Washington State Department of Health, and the CDC, and will continue to update health and safety policies as needed. At this time, masks and proof of vaccination is not required–but we welcome you to wear a mask if you choose.
