Financial contributions enable us to develop educational programs that advance the discussion on vital U.S.-Japan issues, organize networking events that allow Japanese Americans to engage with their Japanese counterparts, coordinate regional, national and international business and legislative networking initiatives and serve as a trusted resource for U.S.-Japan related information through our communications and publications.
