Minoru Yasui Bust

1905 Lawrence Street
Denver, CO 80202
+1 303 892 1505 (Tourist Information)
Sakura Square in downtown Denver has several statues erected due to the importance of the figures in the Japanese and Denver communities. Minoru Yasui was a Japanese-American lawyer who was one of the few to actively protest the Constitutionality of Japanese interment camps during World War II, as well as curfews for minorities. In 1942, Yasui deliberately broke curfew in Portland, Oregon, in protest of the laws, and was convicted and sent to prison for one year while his case was deliberated by the Supreme Court, which at the time upheld his conviction. In 1944, Yasui moved to Denver where he returned to practicing law and fighting for Japanese rights until his conviction was overturned in 1986. The bust in Sakura Square was erected in thanks for all that his protests did in pushing for minority rights during his life. - Sabrina Zirakzadeh
