In 1903, Issei immigrants to the United Stated faced growing anti-Japanese sentiment. Three enterprising college students from Japan dreamed of a newspaper that would not only inform but ultimately unite the emerging Issei community. They founded The Rafu Shimpo, which for 113 years has told the stories and reflected the hearts and minds of Japanese Americans. Please help ensure that our stories continue to be told and preserved for this and future generations. Your donation in any amount is greatly appreciated.*
