Japan is often referred to as a homogeneous society, but beneath this statement is far from common sense. Hafu explores the stories and lives of mixed race Japanese. This growing demographic challenges stereotypical ideas we may hold about Japan. Join us at the DU (University of Denver) Libraries on March 30th for a showing of Hafu.
This fall… more details coming soon.
Date: 2:00pm Sunday, February 18th @ Rayback Collective – 2775 Valmont Road, Boulder CO 80304
Curious what it’s like being a board member of JETAARM? Come join us next Sunday, February 18th, to meet the board, find out what we do, and learn how else you can get involved! This meeting will be held in Boulder, so if you’re in the area we’d love to meet you.
Also, we have some plans to introduce subcommittees so that there are more opportunities for JETs to be involved at the board level. Imagine an “Outdoors Subcommittee” for those that love to hike or a “Sempai Committee” to bring in JETs who have established in their careers and don’t have as much time anymore to be quite so involved.
