When & Where
Japanese American Citizens League
The Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) was founded in 1929 by Japanese American leaders in order to fight the discrimination and prejudice which they and their parents faced. The JACL is the oldest and largest Asian American civil and human rights organization in the nation.
The JACL has 103 chapter and seven districts, with headquarters in San Francisco, an office in Washington, D.C., and Regional District offices located in Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle.
The Japanese American Citizens League is a national organization whose ongoing mission is to secure and maintain the civil rights of Japanese Americans and all otherws who are victimized by injustice and bigotry. The leaders and members of the JACL also work to promote cultural, educational, and social values and preserve the heritage and legacy of the Japanese American community.
