EJS is thrilled to welcome Donald K. Tamaki to our board of directors. Don is known for his historic work serving on the pro bono legal team that reopened the landmark Supreme Court case of Korematsu v. the United States, overturning Fred Korematsu’s conviction for refusing incarceration during the mass incarceration of Japanese Americans during World War II and providing a key legal foundation in the decades-long Japanese American Redress Movement.
Don is Senior Counsel at Minami Tamaki LLP and the firm’s former Managing Partner. Along with EJS President Lisa Holder, he was appointed by Gov. Gavin Newsom to serve on the California Reparations Task Force.
In addition to Don, the EJS board members are John Bonifaz, Kelly Dermody, Fernando Gaytan, Michael Harris (Chair), Lisa Holder, Raymond C. Marshall, Pamela Perkins-Dwyer, and Sheila Warren.
