As the #BlackLivesMatter movement became global, even making its way to Japan, we see the strong need and opportunity to have these important discussions now. Through the Critical Conversation Series, organized by USJC’s TOMODACHI Initiative, we aim to bring together the next generation of leaders in Japan and the United States to enable peer-to-peer learning by bringing thoughtful and inspirational speakers, creating a safe space to share experiences and perspectives, and to continue to be able to educate ourselves and have these important discussions.
The first installment of this series is “What is #BLM?”, to be presented in Japanese and English on Saturday, July 25 (Japan) / Friday, July 24 (U.S.). This is a virtual discussion-based event, and has limited attendance.’
