Jay Inslee with Fumiko Hayashida

Fumiko Hayashida, a 101-year-old Japanese Seattle resident and part of the delegation who testified before Congress on behalf of the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial, visited the Jay Inslee campaign early last week to make a donation of $101 in honor of her age.

Hayashida was a 31-year-old pregnant mother of two when Executive Order 9066 was issued, authorizing the relocation of 110,000 people of Japanese ancestry. She was one of the 227 Bainbridge Island community members relocated under Exclusion Order No. 1. (end)
