Welcome to the Twin Cities Chapter of the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL). The 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, Fresno, San Francisco, Seattle, 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.
