2011 - NSU Helps Organize the JA Legacy Conference

The Legacy Conference is an intergenerational conference promoting JA activism in five different fields. It was held on November 5th, 2011 at JANM, the ideal location to bring JAs to back to Little Tokyo. Iku Kiriyama, Glenn Omatsu, Alan Nishio, Kathy Masaoka, Mark Masaoka, Evelyn Yoshimura, Traci Kato-Kiriyama, Aaron Hamachi, Kei Nagao, Tony Osumi, Sean Miura, and several UCLA Nikkei Student Union students were all part of the planning committee. We were all motivated to bring awareness and action about JA activism issues in different tracks such as education, civil rights, LGBTQ, community preservation, and the recession.
