Role of the Japanese American National Museum

Transcripts available in the following languages:

The [Japanese American National] Museum is not only about the past, but it’s about the present, and it’s about the future—for the future generations to look at what we’ve done, to understand it, and to make their cogent decisions depending upon what their assessment of their conditions will be in the future. So I think that’s what we’re all about and which we should be doing.
