“…experiences of racial, social and economic injustice are shared by many races and ethnicities, and in understanding these common experiences, we become more human, more humane, and more caring.”

Welcome to Enduring Communities: The Japanese American Experience in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, and Utah, an ambitious three-year collaborative project between educators, communities, students and the Japanese American National Museum to create curricula about the Japanese American World War II experience for every classroom in these five states.

We invite you to be a part of the Enduring Communities project, and take the journey with us as we explore what events of the past can teach us about our future.
