…a catalyst for change through cultural awareness–learning from the past in order to influence the future.
At its core is NJAHS’s dedication to engaging audiences. By sharing story of Japanese Americans, their triumphs and tribulations, we tell others about the lessons learned from the past. That way, we can all be better informed to make our impact and pay it forward.
NJAHS engages audiences through a variety of interpretive means:
One-day special events, ceremonies, film screenings, author book signings, panel discussion, Day of Remembrance, Pilgrimages, Veterans, Peace commemorations.
Ground-breaking permanent exhibition (Prejudice & Patriotism), traveling exhibitions, and new rotating exhibits at Post Street Peace Gallery and at the Presidio of San Francisco’s MIS Historic Learning Center.Current Exhibits
On-going, multi-day activities eg. workshops for genealogy, writing & art, oral history sessions, docent training, collection days, preservation classes, “best-ever” NJAHS Discovery Summer Camp.Public Programs
