Founded in 1929, the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL)
is the oldest and largest Asian American civil rights organization in
the United States. The JACL monitors and responds to issues that
enhance or threaten the civil and human rights of all Americans and
implements strategies to effect positive social change, particularly to
the Asian Pacific American community.
The League’s mission is to secure and maintain the civil rights of
Japanese Americans and all others who are victimized by injustice and
bigotry. The leaders and members of the JACL also work to promote
cultural, educational and social values and preserve the heritage and
legacy of the Japanese American community.
JACL has more than 100 chapters throughout the U.S. Their education
programs include, but are not limited to, constitutional rights violations
during the war years.
