JABA is pleased to announce that ACLU President, Susan Herman will be the recipient of the Distinguished Leadership Award and keynote speaker for JABA’s 41st Annual Installation and Awards Gala on Friday, March 3, 2017 at the Omni Hotel in Downtown Los Angeles!

2017 is the 75th anniversary of Executive Order 9066 and it was the ACLU who stood by Japanese Americans like Fred Korematsu and Gordon Hirabayashi to bring the fight to the courts. The ACLU, under the leadership of President Herman, continues to stand by those affected by the immigration ban and continues that fight today.  JABA is honored to recognize President Herman and the ACLU for its continued work in promoting diversity and equality.
