What is JAMP?
Our purpose is to create a centralized website that promotes and educates people about the WWII Japanese American incarceration camps. As a resource for all the pilgrimages, we will provide pertinent information on traveling including dates, costs, registration and lodging. We will conduct interviews to share the pilgrimage experience in order to encourage the younger generations to attend and learn more about their families’ legacies. The interviews will be presented in short documentaries designed to express the importance of pilgrimage as a way to learn about this piece of America’s history. Our stories will not only focus on survivors, but also how the incarceration continues to impacts their descendants and our society as a whole.
