About

Welcome to the Twin Cities Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL). JACL is a national membership organization whose mission is to secure and maintain the human and civil rights of Americans victimized by injustice.

JACL derives its effectiveness through its strategically located regional offices, which serve the needs of the organization’s members and help maintain the well-being of all Americans.

In addition to its national headquarters in San Francisco, the JACL has regional offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago, and Washington D.C.

The Pacific Citizen, publishing news and information for and about the Asian American community since 1929, is a production of the JACL Los Angeles office.

Martha Johnson and I started Full Circle with the idea that “We are all in this together,” and a focus on developing more marginalized voices and artists in the Minnesota theater community. The past ten years have been a fantastic ride on the leading edge of theater here in the Twin Cities. I thank Stephanie Lein Walseth (Co-Artistic Director), Quinci Bachman (Managing Director), our Core Artist Leadership Group, our Board of Directors, and everyone who has supported and worked to make Full Circle such a dynamic company. As we enter our 10th year, I am stepping down from my staff position as Co-Artistic Director, with the intention to remain active as a member of the Core Artist Leadership Group. I look forward not only to continuing as an integral part of the company, but also supporting the new leader who replaces me and who will work alongside Stephanie, Quinci, the Core Artist Leadership Group, and the Board. Together, we are excited to move into our 2024-2025 season with our fall mainstage production, ADVENTURES OF A TRAVELING MESKWAKI by Oogie_Push, and a virtual presentation on ISSUES OF DISABILITY AND THEATER in early 2025. Leadership transitions are often viewed as times of uncertainty, but this moment is also a wonderful opportunity for renewed vision and energy which will carry the foundational work of the first decade into a bright and promising new future.See Rick Shiomi's Full Statement: tinyurl.com/RicksStatementApply to Help Lead Our Circle: tinyurl.com/ApplytoFullCircle ...
