Welcome to the Berkeley JACL

Founded in 1942, the Berkeley JACL is part of the oldest and largest Asian American civil rights organization


The Berkeley Chapter of the JACL is committed to upholding the human and civil rights of all people, strengthening community ties and fostering coalitions with groups who have similar interests. We strive to promote understanding, respect and appreciation of the rich diversity and contributions of all cultures by preserving and advancing the history of Japanese Americans and all other groups in the United States.
