30th Anniversary Benefit

We cordially invite you to join us for a special evening of celebration on the historic occasion of JANM’s 30th Anniversary. We’ll reflect on all we’ve accomplished in our first three decades and the timeliness and timelessness of our mission as we continue to illuminate the Japanese American experience and promote greater understanding and appreciation of America’s ethnic and cultural diversity.

Most of all, it’s a chance for us to come together and look forward to our next 30 years as we apply history’s hard-won lessons and innovative new strategies to reimagine the museum experience, inspire the next generation, and continue the struggle for inclusion and social justice.

See below for some highlights of the event. More information will be available soon!
