Lisa Doi currently serves on the Alumni Leadership Board of Chicago’s Japanese American Citizens League Kansha Project, which educates young Japanese Americans about the history of the Japanese American incarceration. Lisa received a B.A. in Anthropology & Urban Studies from the University of Pennsylvania, and an M.A. in Social Science from the University of Chicago, where her research focused on postwar Japanese American resettlement. For Sharing Stories , Lisa will talk about her family’s experience during the war and their resettlement in Chicago, as well as the obligations of young Nikkei to preserve and share this history.

As an ongoing program, Sharing Stories  creates a space within the exhibition for dialogue and community. Visitors are invited to come to the 2nd floor lounge area to listen to personal stories and to ask questions, share their own experiences or just join the group to learn more about the Japanese American Incarceration camps.
