The Diablo Valley Chapter has been involved in issues such as redress, education about the Japanese American World War II wartime experiences, hate crimes and college scholarships.
The Diablo Valley Chapter is one of over one hundred chapters of a national organization of more than 20,000 members. The national JACL has grown to be the nation's oldest and largest Asian American civil rights organization.
While the national JACL's original mission was focused on protecting the civil rights of Americans of Japanese ancestry, today we have expanded our commitment to protecting the human and civil rights of all segments of Americans who fall victim to social injustice in the United States.
We invite you to join our organization (and no, you do not have to be of Japanese ancestry to be a member).
We also invite you to explore the links to the national JACL website and the Japanese American National Museum.
