This year, we are honored to welcome keynote speaker Suzanne Vares-Lum, president of the East-West Center, and panelists Casimira Rodriguez and Rena Sasaki of the Pacific Forum’s U.S.-Japan Next Generation Leaders Initiative. This program will be moderated by Barbara Tanabe, owner and founder of Hoʻakea Communications, LLC and JASH Board Director.

The Japan U.S. Military Program (JUMP) connects past and present service members, families, and government civilians who have served in Japan through social networks and grassroots events. JUMP is the only national program to do so, providing a powerful foundation for sustaining the alliance between the U.S. and Japan. To learn more about JUMP, visit
