To develop and continue to support new generation leaders from within our communities who will strengthen JACL's ability to lead, advocate, build coalitions and sustain the core values of our organization.
To use the Japanese American experience of incarceration during WWII as one example of how hysteria and fear can wrongfully victimize any minority group.
Utilize social media to improve public visibility of JACL's activities and strengthen the JACL brand by engaging existing members and attracting new audiences with compelling content that is relevant to Japanese Americans, AAPIs and all Americans interested in promoting social justice.
