Legacy Center Events

The JASC Legacy Center hosts a variety of events to raise awareness about our collections and to promote understanding of the Japanese American community’s impact locally, regionally, and nationally.  If you have a suggestion for a future program, we would love to hear from you!  Please contact the Legacy Center Director by email or phone (773-275-0097 ext. 222)  to share your ideas.
