Just this June, a Japanese family visiting Portland was attacked on the Eastbank Esplanade. JAMO stood together with our partners to demand justice. Your donation advocates for our community against anti-Asian hate and violence.
This year, The Oregonian apologized for racist coverage of Japanese Americans in the past, opening the door for healing. Your donation fights to get underrepresented voices listened to.
80 years ago, Japanese American service members’ names were removed from the Hood River Wall of Honor. In an emotional ceremony this year, the American Legion Post 22 apologized for their role in this racist act and donated a collection of related documents to JAMO. Your donation safeguards this collection and the stories of pain, heroism, and reconciliation they contain.
Join us this Giving Tuesday, November 29, to lead the current-day fight to make sure all our voices are heard. Donate today and double your impact.
