We are the Arizona chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), a national organization whose mission is to secure and safeguard the civil and human rights of Asian and Pacific Islander Americans and all communities who are affected by injustice and bigotry. 

The leaders and members of the JACL-AZ also work to promote and preserve the heritage and legacy of the Japanese American Community.

We are a diverse community who invite and welcome all who understand that: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere. We are caught in an inescapable network of mutuality, tied in a single garment of destiny. Whatever affects one directly, affects all indirectly.” ― Martin Luther King, Jr.
