(December 8, 2016)

Closed.

The Sasakawa Peace Foundation and the U.S.-Japan Council are pleased to host a panel discussion with six distinguished Asian American state legislators from diverse backgrounds attending the 2016 Asian American Leadership Delegation (AALD) program - funded by the Sasakawa Peace Foundation and implemented by the U.S.-Japan Council, with support from the National Asian Pacific American Caucus of State Legislators.
The AALD program gives selected state-elected Asian American officials the opportunity to visit Japan for one week to meet and exchange ideas with Japanese political, governmental, business and community leaders at both the national and local levels and aims to enhance mutual understanding and network building between Japan and the United States.
During the panel discussion, delegates will talk about their respective political and personal journeys in the United States, providing the audience with an unique and valuable opportunity to learn about the important role Asian American politicians are playing in their political arenas. They will also reflect views on their week-long experience in Japan.
