The Society would like to express a big thank you to those who donated during the 2021 GiveBig event at the beginning of May. Thanks to the generosity of our donors we raised over $1400 towards our education programs. Now more than ever these programs are vital to promote cultural understanding and friendship to help #StopAsianHate.
Diversity and Inclusion Commitment
Black Lives Matter
The Japan-America Society of the State of Washington is committed to fostering an environment of diversity and inclusion for all people and groups regardless of race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or country of origin. As part of our mission to deepen friendship and understanding between the people of Washington State and Japan, we strive to open hearts and minds to the intrinsic value of every individual. Through our programs we help overcome bigotry, hatred, and violence through education, social events, partnering with other organizations, engaging in advocacy, and reporting surrounding bias. As an organization, we will continue to champion inclusivity, diversity, and social equity. Join us as we provide a safe, understanding and supportive environment for LGBTQ and all community members.
