About Japanese American Citizens League Detroit Chapter

The JACL Detroit Chapter is a cultural hub for the Japanese American community based in metro Detroit. We organize and support programming related to Japanese and Japanese American culture in Michigan, in order to connect with each other, to connect with our history, and to connect with other Asian and ethnic American communities.

Our history is rooted in World War II, when the United States federal government incarcerated over 120,000 Japanese Americans living in the West. Some of those incarcerated were allowed to leave the camps and resettle in Midwestern cities. Detroit was one such destination.

Though resettlement was intended to prevent the formation of new ethnic enclaves and the experience of incarceration dealt a traumatic blow to the Japanese American community’s willingness to express our cultural heritage, the JACL Detroit Chapter has been committed to aiding and celebrating Japanese American community in Michigan since 1946.
