USJC’s Founding President, the late Irene Hirano Inouye, and the late Senator Daniel K. Inouye, together with Japanese American leaders, founded USJC in 2008. Reflecting on their unwavering commitment to U.S.-Japan relations has propelled our resolve to continue their work through the U.S.-Japan Council. They served as shining examples of how to lead through crises, as evidenced by one of USJC’s signature programs – the TOMODACHI Initiative, which was born out of support for Japan’s recovery from the Great East Japan Earthquake.

With your support, USJC can continue to further the vision and mission that the Senator and Irene so steadfastly put in motion.
