“";Legacy of Japanese American Activism: Building an Intergenerational Community"; is an intergenerational conference of Nikkei activists to discuss critical community issues and to take action around these issues.  The conference will be held on Nov. 5, 2011 at the Japanese American National Museum.  Because different generations of Nikkei activists are working on different issues through different organizations, the conference will provide an opportunity to come together and develop a broader perspective for all these issues.  The four generations are Nisei (now in their 70s to 90s), Sansei (now in their 50s and 60s), mid-range activists (late 20s to 40s), and young activists (college students and those in their early 20s).  The intergenerational nature of this conference is important because Japanese American organizations tend to cluster into generational cohorts, and intergenerational dialogue and action is critically needed.  The conference focuses on not only discussing issues but taking action in order to emphasize the legacy of activism in our community, past, present and future.

Workshop topics: Community Preservation, Educate to Transform, Civil liberties and civil rights, Environmental Justice, LGBTQ, Immigrant Rights.
