Day of Remembrance Program & Gathering

The New York Day of Remembrance Committee commemorates the 75th anniversary of President Roosevelt's signing of Executive Order 9066 and honors the 120,000 Japanese Americans incarcerated during WWII.
Be a part of this weekend as we mark this historic anniversary. Now more than ever, the collective lessons of the past are our shared legacy, which influence our decisions as citizens today.

PS 147—Japanese Dual Language Program

PS 147
in Brooklyn is a dynamic, “A” rated, public elementary school in East Williamsburg/Bushwick, with a focus on Environmental Engineering. Our school is proud to be offering NYC DOE's first Japanese dual-language program. Our inaugural K class began in the fall of 2015, and the program is successfully continuing its growth from K-5. We are grateful and excited to cultivate this cultural adventure and the many opportunities it brings to our community.

The JDLP classes consist of Japanese native, heritage and non-native speakers and is successfully continuing its growth through the 5th grade. Not only will students become bilingual/-literate by the time they graduate, they will be bi-cultural in the arts, music, literature and customs of Japan.
