ReVISIONS: Reclaiming, Reviving, Reinventing
Nikkei Youth Conference
Friday-Saturday, April 16-17, 2005

Japanese American National Museum
369 E. First St., Los Angeles CA

The title and purpose of ReVISIONS lie in the hope that today's Nikkei youth can reclaim, revive, and reinvent the definitions of "Nikkei youth" and the "Japanese American community." This conference will encourage young adults at the high school and college age level to critically think about the current status of the JA community and to then form their personal goals as well as a collective vision for the future.

The mission of ReVISIONS is to bring together Japanese American youth from across the country to redefine the Nikkei community of today and form visions for tomorrow. This will be accomplished by:

  • Building relationships between the youth and the different sectors within and outside the Nikkei community,
  • Examining the Japanese American history and correlating present day events with the past,
  • And providing the youth opportunities to participate and/or become involved in the community.

In 2001, dozens of young adults from across California united together to organize a nationwide Nikkei youth conference. With a tremendous amount of support from the Japanese American (JA) community they were able to accomplish their goal and in April of that year Spectrum was held in Little Tokyo, California. The event brought in over one hundred participants from across the country. Together, these young men and women created a dialogue, generated an outline of issues and concerns, and, most importantly, created a voice for the youth of the Nikkei community. Now, in 2005, we, members of the Intercollegiate Nikkei Council (INC) are working to reawaken that voice through ReVISIONS.
