My American Story Program

The Democracy Center at the Japanese American National Museum will celebrate the 2024 Civic Season with What’s Your American Story? A free storytelling program for ten people of all ages and from all backgrounds to tell their own American stories. Storytellers will work with rapper, activist, and educator Jason Chu to choose a meaningful story to tell, structure their story in a compelling way, and present it confidently to an audience.
