St. Louis JACL 1961 – 1995

Years of Fruition… 1961 – 1995

Following 1960 the JACL’s struggle to eliminate discriminatory practices resulted in several significant legislative actions.  In 1965 the Supreme Court ruled that anti-miscengenation laws were unconstitutional.  This ended the need for interracial couples to leave Missouri to marry.  The Immigration Law of 1965 eliminated the national origin quota system and allowed 20,000 individuals per country to come to the U.S.
