Please consider attending and finding out more about what we can do for each other.  I’ll be giving a presentation on what FRANCA is, what it’s done so far, and what we could have it do in future with your help.

Things are not necessarily getting better for Japan’s residents of ethnicity, color, and multiculture.  And they won’t unless somebody pushes for improvements.  That’s what we want to do.

See our goals and contact details at  We look forward to seeing you there.
