NIKKEI INTERFAITH GROUP OF LITTLE TOKYO TO UNITE COMMUNITY ON ONE-YEAR ANNIVERSARY OF JAPAN EARTHQUAKE/TSUNAMI DISASTER

Candlelight Vigil to be held  on Sunday, March 11 at 6:30 p.m. 

WHEN: Sunday Evening -- March 11 
                        6:30-7:30 p.m. (starts promptly at 6:30 p.m.) 

WHERE: Little Tokyo (Los Angeles, CA) -- Intersection of 1st Street and Central Avenue on the Japanese American National Museum Plaza (JANM). 

WHAT: Come share in a community-wide candlelight vigil on the one year anniversary of the earthquake and tsunami that struck northeastern Japan on March 11, 2011. A sea of candles will demonstrate the support of Little Tokyo, the city of Los Angeles, and the importance of solidarity amongst all of humankind in 
the face of this world disaster. 

This event will be reflective, as we remember the lives of individuals and families that were lost in this tragedy. It will also be hopeful, as we light candles that break the darkness of hopelessness and despair for those who survived and continue to struggle as they attempt to move forward in their lives. 

WHO: Among those supporting this candlelight vigil are the Nikkei Interfaith Group of Little Tokyo, the Nisei Week Foundation, and the Japanese American National Museum.
