George Takei acceptance speech — 2016 MPAC Media Awards

MPAC’s 25th annual Media Awards honoree, George Takei, is a tireless advocate for racial equality and civil rights.

Actor, director, author and activist, George Takei has been a consistent voice speaking out against anti-Muslim rhetoric. A dedicated human rights advocate, Takei is an important voice warning us that today’s political rhetoric about American Muslims is reminiscent of the rhetoric that led to one of the darker stages of our history — the outright internment of Japanese Americans.

You can build a future free from fear and bigotry.

Invest in MPAC’s work to improve public policies and perceptions. We’re changing how America views Islam and Muslims.
