 California Legacy Voice Network: 2016 JAMsj Workshops

Saturday, March 12, 2016
9:00 a.m.

San Jose, CA  95112 

The California Legacy Voice Network has scheduled a professional development workshop for teachers and administrators in Region 5 (Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, and Monterey Counties) at the Japanese American Museum of San Jose (JAMsj) in San Jose's Japantown. This workshop is the final one in this series and will be held Saturday, March 12, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., including lunch and a museum tour. JAMsj is one of eight regions in California collaborating to promote awareness of the WWII concentration camp experience. 
Guest speaker Karen Korematsu, as well as additional speakers, will address four critical areas:
  • California's assembly centers (staging areas)
  • The Japanese American internment
  • Fred Korematsu's story
  • The family stories of local Legacy Voices
Participants will receive materials to share with students and colleagues at their schools and school districts, thus preparing them to become Legacy Voices. This effort, the Japanese American Confinement Sites grant, is sponsored by the National Park Service, the Korematsu Institute for Civil Rights and Education, and JAMsj.
Pre-registration for the March 12 workshop is due March 4, 2016.
