Join us this Sunday, September 5th at 4 pm for the return of  Many Roads to Here, a production of The Immigrant Story, and the second episode of its new series, Many Roads in Conversation. Listen live at 99.1 FM in the heart of Portland – or online anywhere at

In this episode, we will hear two voices in dialogue, talking through major cases in the Supreme Court and how legislation has affected Asian-American civil rights, including Executive Order 9066, which incarcerated Japanese Americans during World War II.

In Conversation are Peggy Nagae and Chris Ling. Both worked as attorneys and have been active in diversity, equity and inclusion work in the Oregon legal community. Peggy is the owner and principal of Peggy Nagae Consulting. Chris is now a software engineer. They spoke at the Japanese American Museum of Oregon in May 2021, in front of the actual jail cell that once held lawyer and civil rights advocate Min Yasui — you’ll hear a lot more about Min during their conversation.

This episode is produced as part of the Oregon Rises Above Hate coalition based in Portland, Oregon and made possible by a generous contribution by Anne Naito-Campbell.

This episode was produced by Caitlin Dwyer. Our audio editing was done by Rick March, assisted by Gordon Graham. Music was composed by Corey Larkin. Our executive producer is Sankar Raman.
