Public Schools to take action toward educating students about this issue when covering the topic of World War II; and

WHEREAS, in anticipation of the commemoration of the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II, in an effort to educate all on the abuses suffered by women and girls during the time, the Korean American Community has made great strides in raising awareness, lobbying governments to pass legislation condemning human trafficking and re-committing preservation of human rights, and organizing a memorial dedication in Chicago to the memory of “comfort women”; now, therefore

BE IT RESOLVED, the City Council of Chicago recognizes and condemns all human rights violations, including the use of “comfort women” during WWII by acknowledging the suffering endured during forced internment in Japanese military comfort stations.
