Join our history. 

Imagine a world in which the Asian Exclusion Act of 1924, designed to “preserve the ideal of American homogeneity,” had never been repealed. 

Imagine if Asian Americans had never gained the right to own land or become naturalized citizens. Imagine if derogatory terms such as “chink” and “jap” were still commonplace in the media. 

Imagine if legislation aimed at limiting the rights of Muslim Americans after 9/11 had never been counteracted. 

Since 1929, the JACL has fought and helped win these battles.
