It’s been five years since the March 2011 earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster in the Tohoku region of Japan, but the road to recovery continues.

As a supporter, the Japan Society of Northern California invites you to join the JET Program Alumni Association of Northern California (JETAANC) to learn more about life in Tohoku, donate to a good cause, and write messages of hope to the people of Tohoku! Refreshments will be served.

The 113 Project: Reclaiming Tohoku is a compilation of short films of people in Tohoku, Japan, telling their stories and sharing their hopes for revitalization. The mission of the 113 Project is to create a venue for dialogue and action that reclaims the message of the Tohoku disaster as an opportunity for good.

The screening will feature a panel discussion and Q&A with:

  • Wesley Julian, Director, 113 Project: Reclaiming Tohoku; JET Program alumnus
  • Takeno Chiyo Suzuki, Coordinator of International Affairs, Miyagi Prefecture; JET Program alumna; SF native
  • Andy Anderson, Father of Taylor Anderson; Founder, Taylor Anderson Memorial Foundation
  • Consul Shinsuke Mochizuki, Consulate General of Japan in San Francisco; Tohoku native
  • Hiroto Nishikawa, UC Davis exchange student; active volunteer in Tohoku recovery
  • Community members knowledgeable about Tohoku recovery

    The panel will be moderated by Gary Mukai, Director of the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE) and a member of the JETAANC Board of Directors.

At the film screening, you will have an opportunity to donate to the Taylor Anderson Memorial Foundation, benefiting kids and families in Tohoku through a range of powerful educational and family support programs. They are still recovering and are in need of our continued help. Even better, GlobalGiving will match your donation 50%, increasing its impact!

Film tickets are $10.00 each + a web processing fee and available for purchase here.
