The California Legacy Voice Network has scheduled three professional

(Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Monterey Counties) at the Japanese American
Museum of San Jose in San Jose's Japantown.

The free workshops will be held from 9:00am - 12:00pm followed by lunch and tour of the museum:
Saturday, March 7, 2015
Saturday, August 8, 2015
Saturday, September 19, 2015

Guest speakers (Jeanne Wakatsuki Houston, Karen Korematsu and others)
will address four critical stories:
· The California’s assembly centers
· The Japanese American Internment
· Fred Korematsu’s story
· The family stories of local Legacy Voices
Participants will receive materials to share with students and colleagues
at their schools and school districts, thus preparing them to become
legacy voices. This Japanese American Confinement Sites grant is
sponsored by the National Park Service, the Korematsu Institute for Civil
Rights and Education, and the Japanese American Museum of San Jose
