Join JACL – together, we can make a difference.

JACL provides leadership on a national scale for many important issues that affect our daily lives. These programs have included in recent years the monitoring of anti-Asian violence; the promoting of accurate accounts of the Japanese American experience in our nation’s textbooks; the promotion of leadership development skills; the creation of the Legacy Fund,a perpetual endowment that is helping to ensure that we can carry on our work into the future; and the ongoing monitoring of the campaign for Redress, in which we successfully lobbied the US Government for compensation and an apology for Japanese American WWII internment camp survivors.

As a member of JACL you become reconnected-through a wide range of local programs and activities at the Chapter level-to the spirit, heritage, and culture of Japanese American life. This may include participating in social activities, helping out with educational programs, or simply attending local board meetings.
