Drawing from his extensive experience, Clarence Moriwaki, the past president of the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Community and the Bainbridge Island Japanese American Exclusion Memorial Association, brings a timeless and timely narrative about the loss of liberty during periods of fear, prejudice, and political leadership failures. With a remarkable track record, including being recognized as the National Parks Conservation Association’s 2008 Conservationist of the Year and the 2017 Citizen of the Year by the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce, Clarence Moriwaki’s contributions span various roles in government, conservation, and community leadership, making him a compelling speaker for this important event.
