In addition to the National Council Session, this year’s Sayonara Awards will feature special guests including Olympic figure skaters Maia and Alex Shibutani. There also will be a special FREE youth rate, workshops on stopping AAPI Hate, Redress & Reparations, addressing anti-Blackness in the Japanese American community, intersectional LGBTQ issues and much more.
