ACRS -- Join Walk for Rice 2021, an online fundraising event to support the Food Bank at Asian Counseling and Referral Service (ACRS), running from April 2 through June 19.

JCCCW – Join the 2021 Virtual Tomodachi Gala on Thursday, June 17, from 7:00-7:45 PM. This year's theme is Resilience.

Come to honor Tazue and Yutaka Sasaki and find out more about the ‘J’ over the last year - from cataloging museum items, hosting other virtual events, and reopening the beloved Hosekibako to the public!

Join in honoring the Sasakis for their work to strengthen and celebrate the U.S.-Japan relationship.
