"The Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) is a membership organization [founded in 1930] whose mission is to secure and maintain the human and civil rights of Americans of Japanese ancestry and others victimized by injustice. The JACL has 112 chapters nationwide and eight regional districts with over 24,000 members found in twenty-three states. In addition to its national headquarters in San Francisco, the JACL has five regional offices (Los Angeles, Fresno, San Francisco, Seattle, Chicago), as well as an office in Washington D.C. and an organizational newspaper, the Pacific Citizen, distributed nationally from its office in Los Angeles. The JACL derives its effectiveness through its regional offices located in key cities and areas to serve the needs of the organization's members and to maintain the well-being of all Asian Americans." -- Taken from the official JACL website; www.jacl.org Encoded Archival Description(EAD): http://www.tiny.cc/xNbZh Dates: 1928-1975 (inclusive) Collection Number: UU_A0286 Encoded Archival Description(EAD): http://www.tiny.cc/xNbZh
