Are you interested in getting more involved with the Mile High JACL? We are always looking for more members to participate in our various committees and help plan future events. Here are some ways that you can get involved:
Recognizing the importance of empowering current young leaders, we are striving to engage our younger members and develop programs specifically designed for high school and college students as well as young professionals.
JACL has a long history of advocating for policies that protect and promote the welfare of Japanese Americans, Asian Americans, and other communities. Current focus areas include health care, immigration, education, and the census.
Our chapter plays an integral part in keeping the Japanese American community of Colorado informed about various community events through our website and newsletter.
Day of Remembrance
Working in collaboration with the University of Denver, this annual event honors those whose lives were forever changed by the signing of Executive Order 9066 which paved the way for the internment of people of Japanese ancestry during World War II.
Socials & Special Events
Our chapter brings the Japanese American community together through a variety of social events including our quarterly socials, annual Recognition Luncheon, OCA/JACL Lunar New Years Dinner, Graduation Banquet, etc.
