WASHINGTON — The National JACL has announced that it is publishing a series of short essays to discuss sexual assault, violence, and the way in which individuals in our community are affected by these issues.

This first essay broadly discusses sexual assault and victimization, and how a culture of rape can affect women and LGBTQIA individuals. In later writings JACL will discuss how these things uniquely impact the Japanese American community and explore important topics that are only briefly introduced in the first essay.
