Join the JACL-AZ community to celebrate remembrance, resilience, reconnecting, harmony with nature (gratitude), and children (hope).

About this event

The JACL-AZ board is pleased to announce our first in-person community event since the COVID-19 pandemic shutdown.

Inspired by Golden Week -- a week-long celebration of several holidays in Japan that occur in late April to early May -- our community will gather for several reasons: remembrance, resilience, reconnecting, harmony with nature (gratitude), and children (hope for the future).

The event will also celebrate:

  • Guest speaker: Carolyn Sugiyama Classen, J.D., Southern Arizona Japanese Cultural Coalition (Former Legislative Aide to U.S. Senator Daniel Inouye)
  • Gold Saguaro Tribute Award recipients โ€“ Kelly Moeur & Bryce Suzuki
  • Scholarship recipients
  • Essay-challenge winners

Appetizers and drinks provided.

Space is limited, so RSVPs are required.
