The Departments of Women’s Studies and Religion along with participating community groups will host a special event, Japan After 3.11: Change and Hope from the Center of Triple Disasters, a public symposium to commemorate the second anniversary of the 3.11 triple disasters (earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear crisis) that devastated the North Eastern region of Japan. Speakers will include Yuko Nishiyama, a Fukushima mother and activist, who will discuss her experience of the nuclear crisis and the struggles evacuees face. Kelsey Soma Turek, from the Japan-America Society of Hawaii, will address Rainbow for Japan Kids, a program that brings children from the effected regions of Japan to Hawaii for respite.
