In May of 2016, GFBNEC opened a new educational exhibition about the Japanese American soldier legacy within the broader context of the Japanese American experience of World War II called Go For Broke National Education Center’s Defining Courage Exhibition. Located in the Nishi Hongwanji building in the Little Tokyo Historic District of Los Angeles, the 3,800 square foot permanent exhibition examines this chapter of history from a contemporary perspective that incorporates issues facing our communities and nation today.
Defining Courage encourages dialogue and critical thinking about tolerance and social justice in a democratic society, stimulates civic awareness, and fosters empowerment
