In response to recent racist incidents at Charles H. Wilson Park in Torrance, California, more than 100 joined together at the park on July 11 to protest the inaction of the Torrance city attorney, who declines to file charges for the Wilson Park incidents, citing insufficient evidence.
Members of the Manzanar Committee participated in the protest, including Martha Porter, who is pictured in the Rafu Shimpo story on the protest: Protestors Demand Torrance D.A. Address Anti-Asian Hate Incidents at Wilson Park.
