JACL is excited to announce a new program for high school students — Bridging Communities.
Bridging Communities provides a space for cross-cultural dialogue, community service, and personal growth. Through an examination of the similarities between the WWII incarceration experience of Japanese Americans and the post-9/11 experience of the Muslim Americans, Bridging Communities builds solidarity between these two communities. The goal of Bridging Communities is to empower young people to speak up against prejudice and stereotypes and develop as active leaders within their communities and beyond.
