Honor Former Japanese Incarcerees

Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Johnny Cepeda Gogo’s mission to honor former incarcerees at the concentration camps for Japanese Americans continues July 28 at the Salt Lake City Buddhist Temple.

Gogo, who lives in San Jose, Calif., will appear between 1 and 3 p.m. at the temple at 211 W. 100 South as part of his effort to have former incarcerees sign a 48-star flag similar to those that flew over camps such as Heart Mountain and Topaz during the war.

The judge’s effort started in March after he worked with fellow Judge Roberta Hayashi to honor the legal struggle waged by Fred T. Korematsu against the federal government’s forced removal and incarceration of 120,000 Japanese Americans.

His appearance is being organized by the Salt Lake City chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League and the Heart Mountain Wyoming Foundation, which is conducting its annual pilgrimage in Cody, Wyo., the previous weekend. Gogo will appear at the Heart Mountain Pilgrimage and then travel to Salt Lake City.

Fired Up: Wildfire, Fish, and Water Security in Utah

This interactive event will take place via Zoom. Once registered, you will receive instructions for how to access the webinar in your confirmation email. We will also be recording this program and will share it with registrants afterward. Utah has experienced several of the largest fires in state history in the past few years, leaving large scars in our forests and degrading air quality, fish habitat, and water resources. Why is the fire regime changing and what is it expected to look like in the future? What are the implications for Utah’s water? Patrick Belmont will explore these questions and discuss ways we could better manage our forests, fires, fish, and water resources to ensure better outcomes in the future. Patrick Belmont is a Professor and Head of the Department of Watershed Sciences at Utah State University. His research spans many disciplines...hydrology, ecology, fire science, erosion and climatology, in order to study watersheds as integrated systems. And he is constantly working to make science useful for policy and management.
