Supporters Push for Mitsuye Endo's Presidential Medal of Freedom - NBC News

My article for NBC News Asian America
"The fight against Japanese American internment today is often remembered as a struggle by three men: Minoru Yasui, Gordon Hirabayashi and Fred Korematsu,"Gil Asakawa, author of "Being Japanese American," told NBC News. "But Mitusye Endo's contribution shouldn't be forgotten. She was the fourth Japanese American, and the only woman, to fight her incarceration in an American concentration camp in the judicial system, all the way to the Supreme Court."
