Welcome!

Dear Members and Friends,

Welcome to our Watsonville-Santa Cruz Japanese American Citizens League (W-SC JACL) website.

Your W-SC JACL Officers and Board Members are a hardworking team dedicated to serving the greater community in upholding the civil and human rights of all, educating the generations about the unjust incarceration of Japanese, Japanese Americans during World War II, expressing gratitude to our Nikkei (of Japanese ancestry) veterans, and promoting cultural outreach and appreciation.

We are grateful to our terrific membership for their encouraging support of our programs, events and issues we undertake. We thank you for your participation and assistance throughout the year.

Our W-SC JACL membership is open to everyone and is not limited to Japanese Americans. We welcome you, your family, and friends to join us or to renew your membership from wherever you reside in the USA.

The COVID-19 pandemic and group gathering restrictions have cancelled many community events and programs. JACL at the National, District, and Local levels have tried their best to provide presentations via ZOOM. We hope the success of the vaccination outreach will soon give us the opportunity to gather together in celebration.

Please take care and stay well.

Marcia Hashimoto
President, W-SC JACL
