• We are deeply saddened by the tragedy of the event that transpired in Atlanta on March 18th. Our hearts go out to the eight lives that were lost yesterday as well as the many others who were victims of Asian American hate crimes in the past year. USJETAA stands in solidarity alongside the AAPI community and we call for an end to the rise of anti-Asian harassment and violence.


  • Remembering March 11, 2011

    Ten years ago the Great East Japan Earthquake and tsunami devastated the Tohoku region of Japan. On this anniversary, we remember those who lost their lives during this tragedy. On behalf of USJETAA and the JET alumni community, we express our support for the people of Japan. We are with you in solidarity.
