Nikkei 2000 Conference

April 28-30, 2000

Conference - in San Francisco

This is a follow-up to the historic gathering that took place in Los Angeles in April 1998 in which 450 people gathered to discuss the important issues facing the Nikkei Community, with an eye towards how to preserve the valuable cultural values and heritage that helps to make us a strong citizens.  What is the future of the Nikkei community, and what can we do to preserve and pass on to the next generation a sense of identity and place?  What are the ties that bind us together?  Are Japantowns and Little Tokyo's worth protecting?  How to teach our ethnic culture to our children so that they will be strengthened by them?  These and many other questions will be dealt with, as well as the presentation of a survey conducted last year in the Bay Area, and a Nikkei Declaration for our future.  The Nikkei community is becoming more diverse, and our defined identity must also change and expand.  Please come and participate in this next step to plan and work for our community's future.  

For information, call the Japanese American Cultural Community Center of No. California at (415) 567-5505 and ask for information regarding the Nikkei 2000 conference.
