We had the privilege of attending the Japanese Canadian National Conference this past weekend. The conference coincided with the Japanese Canadian Young Leaders Conference, where our CEO got the chance to sit on a panel.
Important discussions around race, identity, racism and acceptance were made. The conference created a space for Japanese Canadian young people to remember the past, recognize the present, and re-imagine the future for their community, as well as others! By prioritizing dialogue and empowering young people through workshops, heritage tours, panels, and intergenerational discussions, the organization offered a unique opportunity for young Japanese Canadians to develop, inspire, and lead Nikkei communities across the country.
Thanks for inviting us and we hope to see you guys again!
