Conference Summary

During the weekend of March 13-15, 1998, the Sansei Legacy Project will host its first National Conference at the Japanese Cultural and Community Center of Northern California, located at 1840 Sutter Street, San Francisco, CA 94115 (415/567-5505).

On Friday and Saturday, 25 guests made up of community members, artists, scholars, and activists will gather together to discuss the long-term impact of the Japanese-American internment experience on Sansei ("third-generation Americans of Japanese descent") and its relationship to intergenerational communication within their families.
Sunday's events, open to the public, feature a six-member panel discussion centered on "Strategies for Healing."

The 25 Resource People participating in the conference will reflect and focus on the writings and counseling experience of family therapist Nobu Miyoshi. Among the themes which will be explored are:

Legacy of Injustice
Silent Inheritance
Ethnic Identity

"Legacies of Camp: A Journal of Thought and Action" is tentatively scheduled for publication in November 1998. Incorporating selected articles written by conference Resource People and others, the journal will be available for distribution to educational and mental health organizations and will serve as a document for shaping policy for the ongoing need to understand and implement healing within the Japanese-American community. The journal will be available for purchase from the Sansei Legacy Project at a cost of $15, plus shipping and handling.
