JASH Weekly Update 9/9: 20 Years after 9/11

Dear Members and Friends of JASH, This Saturday, we take a moment of silence in memory of the 20th anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Our hearts are with those who lost family, friends, and loved ones during this tragedy. For further reading, we recommend visiting the 9/11 Memorial & Museum’s 20th anniversary tribute. To learn more about the response from the Nisei community, we recommend visiting Densho: The Japanese American Legacy Project.
