  5. On February 23, 2017, judges, lawyers, teachers and high school students gathered at the Sandra Day O’Connor United States Courthouse in Phoenix for a special program promoting the 2017 Ninth Circuit Civics Contest. The program was sponsored by the Phoenix Chapter of the Federal Bar Association. It featured a panel presentation from Senior Circuit Judge A. Wallace Tashima, Senior Circuit Judge Mary M. Schroeder, and Katheryn Nakagawa, an associate professor in the School of Social Transformation at Arizona State University. The program was entitled "Legal Lessons of the Japanese Internment: 75 Years after E.O. 9066," the presidential directive issued in 1942, which resulted in curfews and the forcible relocation of more than 100,000 people of Japanese descent to internment camps.
