Visit their website here: https://remembercomfortwomen.org/ and register for the event here: bit.ly/92121CW4 The ‘Comfort Women’ Justice Coalition is a grassroots, multi-ethnic and multi-national group of individuals and organizations that are part of the global “Comfort Women” Justice Movement. They are guided by the powerful leadership of the grandmothers (the surviving “Comfort Women”) themselves. In 2017, they unveiled the memorial Comfort Women: Column of Strength in San Francisco to remember the hundreds of thousands of women and girls sexually enslaved by the Japanese Imperial Army from the early 1930s to 1945 and to educate the public about their history. The memorial symbolizes their international resolve never to let that atrocity be repeated, and the memorial is also a reverent testament to all those who have been victims of sexual violence and sex trafficking.
