Biography / Administrative History

Founded in 1929, the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL) is the nation's oldest and largest Asian Pacific American civil rights organization. It was originally formed to address racial discrimination against Americans of Japanese ancestry, and was one of few organizations in the 1920's and 1930's to challenge racist policies of state and federal governments. JACL's headquarters are located in San Francisco and currently has five regional offices, including Washington, D.C.
JACL has achieved many civil rights victories, including the co-founding of the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights in 1948, the successful elimination of the term "Jap", which was replaced by "Jpn" as the official abbreviation, the lobbying of various legislative measures, including the 1952 Walter-McCarren Act, which allowed naturalization rights to Japanese immigrants, the 1964 Civil Rights Act, and the 1988 redress legislation (Civil Liberties Act of 1988), which compensated Japanese-Americans for their internment during World War II.
Today, the JACL continues to work toward the elimination of racial stereotypes, prejudice, and discrimination, advocates for more effective federal and state civil rights laws, promotes the accurate portrayal of Asian Pacific American culture and history, invests in youth education, and fights hate crimes and bias incidents.

Scope and Content of Collection

Overlapping of topics and issues, particularly racial discrimination, occurs throughout the collection; therefore, materials pertaining to a particular topic may be found in other parts of the collection. For example, the issue of racial discrimination has its own subseries, and this issue can also be found in a number of court cases and other documents in Military, Employment, and Redress subseries. Employment has its own subseries and can also be found as a topic within the Women's Issues subseries. Where possible, materials were kept in original order, which also accounts for the overlapping of documents on a particular topic or issue.
Materials related to JACL may also be found in the JACL, Pacific Southwest District Office Records, and JACL, Headquarters Records.
The collection is arranged into the following series:

1) JACL-DC Administrative Files, 1983-1999

2) Civil Liberty and Human Rights Issues, 1941-2000 (bulk: 1985-1999)

3) Subject Files, 1970-2000 (bulk: 1988-1999)
Series 1: JACL-DC Administrative Files, 1983-1999 This series documents the history, management, staffing, and finances of JACL-DC. The series includes fact sheets, board of directors correspondence, JACL chapter newsletters, and district activity reports.
Series 2: Civil Liberty and Human Rights Issues, 1941-2000 (bulk: 1985-1999) This series comprises the bulk of the collection (23 linear feet), and underscores JACL's mission to advocate for civil rights not only for Japanese Americans but also for all Americans. The materials documents the issues for which JACL advocated, including Affirmative Action, Education, Employment, Gay Rights, and Immigration (see below for complete list). The series is arranged alphabetically by subject, beginning with general civil rights topics. Under each subject, miscellaneous or general documents are listed first, followed by materials on specific topics pertaining to that subject.
A highlight of the series is the numerous court cases involving discrimination against Asian Pacific Americans. JACL was directly involved with several court cases and served as legal representation. In the employment discrimination suit, Atonio v. Wards Cove Packing Company (1.5 linear feet of material), more than 2,000 Asian Pacific Americans and Native Alaskans repealed the special interest exemption from the Civil Rights Act of 1991 of Wards Cove Packing Company.
Also documented here are materials on the Leadership Conference on Civil Rights (LCCR) and on the redress legislation (Civil Liberties Act of 1988) and its amendments. Materials on redress include correspondence, newspaper clippings, memoranda, copies of legislation, and documents on several internment camp sites, including Manzanar and Poston.
Other materials pertaining to this series may also be found in the chronological section of correspondence and newspaper clippings within Series 3.
Series 3: Subject Files, 1970-2000 (bulk: 1988-1999) This series documents other Asian Pacific American civil rights and human rights organizations and provides some context for JACL's activities in advocacy and education. Also documented here are issues that JACL-DC advocated but are not covered in Series 2. These issues include the U.S. Census and the counting of Asian Pacific Americans and the Presidential Campaign Fundraising Scandal of 1996, which raised concerns about the fund-raising efforts by the Democrats from Asian Americans. Documents include correspondence and memoranda, newspaper clippings, and press releases.
The series also contains material on various individuals, including a number of prominent Asian Americans such as Senator Daniel Inouye, Congressman Norm Mineta, and Congressman Spark Matsunaga. In addition, Series 3 documents other minority groups, including Hispanic Americans, African Americans, and Korean Americans.
The end of Series 3 includes the chronological run of materials by medium, including correspondence, memoranda, newspaper clippings, newsletters, and press releases
