    DAJ Has Been Active In 2018; Still So Much More To Do

    +
    Members of DA Japan have been speaking up against the inhumane and unfair policies of the Trump White House and GOP-run Congress. We have marched, held a vigil for victims of gun violence, tweeted, signed petitions, protested in person and virtually. We have strategised, written letters to Congress and hosted DA members from around the globe at the annual Global Meeting. 

    There are only a few months left until the next election. 

    Join us in making America a country where all people are respected and given a chance to succeed. 

    Vote Democrat in 2018.

     Come to DAJ meetings and events. 

    Speak out about the issues that are important to you. 

    Tell us your ideas. 

    Help us spread the word.

    Upcoming Events

    Wesley Center in Minato-ku, Japan

    Do we need an Equal Rights Amendment Discussion

    A joint event with Women of the World Unite to mark the annual worldwide Women's March.

    The event will kick off with a casual discussion over a light lunch about gender issues in Japan, then will be followed by a discussion of the merits and demerits of enshrining women’s rights in a nation’s constitution through passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. Not all agree that the Equal Right's Amendment should be passed in the United States, so this should be an interesting and passionate discussion. Join us to have your voice heard.

    Discussion about systems and guarantees in various countries will be followed by a workshop focused on concrete actions that we can take to promote gender equality.

    Cost: 2000 yen (light lunch included)
