Black Lives Matter - A Statement & Resources

Black Lives Matter. We stand in solidarity with those touched by the loss of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, George Floyd, along with their families and communities. It is important for our community of educators and international ambassadors to recognize the impact of systemic racism and injustices imposed on black, brown, and indigenous communities. We must answer the call to help dismantle these racist and oppressive systems.


Black Lives Matter. Our organization stands for peaceful grassroots exchange, understanding, and learning between America and Japan. So many of us in Japanese schools were asked to teach about MLK and the history of civil rights. We believe diversity is our strength.


Black Lives Matter. Many of our cultural exports to Japan are created by the Black community. The actions that we take here not only affect people in our own country, but also those people around the globe with whom we share this bond. It is imperative that we honor this rich heritage and end this cycle of violence and oppression.


We encourage our community to educate themselves, donate to organizations, and support the needs of the black community, now more than ever.
