In search of justice in the case of Military Sexual Slavery by Japan (commonly known as ‘Comfort Women’), a handful of residents in California joined a national grassroots movement to successfully pass the House Resolution 121, aka ‘Comfort Women Resolution’, which passed on July 30, 2007.

In an effort to continue to raise awareness regarding the unresolved history and to push the government of Japan to formally acknowledge and apologize for the Military Sexual Slavery, Korean American Forum of California was formed a few years later.  Our first effort is to build ‘Comfort Women’ memorials in California, also a national grassroots effort in the US, as a way to continue to put pressure of the government of Japan and to raise public awareness.
