    Our keynote speaker, Nancy Ukai is a writer, researcher and Project Director of the 2016 National Park Service Japanese American Confinement Sites grant: "50 Objects/Stories of the American Japanese Incarceration." In marking the 75th anniversary of EO 9066, she will introduce objects that tell extraordinary stories about the lives of early JAWA members with special attention to objects from the World War II incarceration period, showing how they evoke and narrate the lives of these Nisei women.

  • Outstanding Alumna of the Year:

    Amy Iwasaki Mass, Professor Emerita at Whittier College and social worker for 59 years, was one of the first Japanese Americans to examine the psychological impact of the concentration camps on Japanese Americans. Her testimony at the Redress Commission hearings in 1982 helped shape the final conclusions of the commission's report, Personal Justice Denied. As a member of the Heart Mountain Advisory Committee, she continues to educate the public about the injustice of race-based detention.

  • JAWAUCB cordially invites all who are interested in attending. The cost of the luncheon is $45 for regular guests and $25 for students. Reservation deadline is February 27, 2017. For more information contact Carol Tateishi at caroltateishi@gmail.com.
