J-TOWN Action and Solidarity is a group of culture workers dedicated to exploring, critiquing, and acting on the intersection of art, politics, and community care. We are deeply tied to Little Tokyo, a place we love for its lineage of art and activism. The history of the Japanese American experience has given us both righteous anger and inspired joy, we stand with those made most vulnerable by overlapping systems of oppression. We choose to show up in action and in solidarity.
