COVID-19: Cancelled and Postponed Events

This is a challenging time for us all as a nation as we all seek to do our part to reduce the impact of COVID-19. We must all do our part to keep safe those who might be more vulnerable.

Because of the directives from local public health departments and governments, JACL staff are now teleworking. Although we will not be in our physical offices, JACL is still committed to serving the community. Please direct all phone calls to our Washington, D.C. Office at (202) 223-1240 and we will get back to you as quickly as possible. Otherwise, we will all be available via email.

We remain vigilant for how the disease spread progresses, particularly in consideration of our convention scheduled for June 24-28. At this time, we continue to plan towards holding the convention as scheduled. We will notify you should there be any change in 2020 Convention plans.

In light of COVID-19 and recommendations from the CDC, many events have been cancelled or postponed. The JACL will do its best to keep these events for the larger Japanese American community up to date. To add to this list please email
