On March 19, several current and prospective members in the Seattle area gathered to celebrate USJC and the participants of the TOMODACHI Social Innovation in Seattle Scholars (SIIS) program. Among them were Members of the Board of Directors Phyllis Campbell (see the video of her speech here) and Jill Nishi, and Council Members Britt Yamamoto (who leads the SIIS program) and Harold Taniguchi (see his video in theTOMODACHI Corner below).
