Since its inception in 1985, the Japanese American National Museum has chronicled more than 130 years of the evolving Japanese American story. With its highly-regarded educational programming and outreach, including its National Conferences, the National Museum is able to share the remarkable journey of our Issei and Nisei generations. In addition, through the Museum's media arts productions, publications, and online resources, JANM is able to make accessible to new and global audiences important lessons and legacies of the Japanese American experience. Check out the many resources specifically related to the Conference theme through our affiliated website, discovernikkei.org, and also other general resources available on janm.org.
