2017 September Grant awarded to the Japaneses American Museum of San Jose’s (JAMsj) Living Redress in San Jose

We are please to announce our support of JAMsj’s Living Redress in San Jose.  Our grant will be used to redesign and expand one of the museums existing wall display on redress. The movement for redress for the forced exclusion and incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII was a historic achievement, and the effort to achieve redress and the meaning of victory is still within living memory of many of our seniors.

JAMsj started in 1987 in a single room of the Issei Memorial Building. In 2016, the museum served over 1,725 students and almost 4,000 visitors. The mission of the Japanese American Museum of San Jose is to collect, preserve and share Japanese American history, culture and art with a focus on the Greater Bay Area.
