Since our incorporation in 1985, the Japanese American National Museum has remained dedicated to the fulfillment of its mission and its vision to keep the Japanese American experience relevant within the context of the larger American story.

Each year the Museum’s Gala Dinners have presented the remarkable stories from the Japanese American community, all of which have become an integral part of the Museum’s core work. This year’s Gala Dinner theme, Vision, Values, Voices, highlights the impact that our highly-regarded programs and exhibitions have made upon visitors and audiences from around the globe. Through the voices of our educators, students, visitors, partners, artists, and through the National Museum leadership, staff, and volunteers, the program will illuminate the breadth and significance of our work that continues to inspire and transform lives each day.

U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye
At the 2013 Gala Dinner, the National Museum will give special tribute to an extraordinary leader and friend—U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye—whose commitment to the principles and values of democracy influenced the formation of the National Museum’s vision and educational programs, such as the National Center for the Preservation of Democracy and the Bid for Education program which provides vital funds for bus transportation, Museum admission, curriculum development, and educator training to tens of thousands of students annually.

We invite you to an evening of remembrance, reflection, and celebration.
