Synopsis

Hawkman informs the members that the Nazis are trying a new strategy on America: divide and conquer, by using prejudices and hatred among people to severely disrupt our war effort. Each member is asked to enlist the assistance of the Junior Justice Society members in their locality and to sign up new members where possible.

The JSA gather at a giant motion picture palace to talk to the American people about what the Nazis are attempting to do and ask for their help in ending racial and religious prejudices. After all, as Hawkman says, we are ALL Americans, regardless of race, creed or religion, and the enemies are Hitler, Mussolini and Tojo, and together we can defeat that enemy!
