Public Forums

Sasakawa USA’s Public Outreach Program aims to engage more Americans across the United States on issues pertinent to U.S.-Japan relations and improve their understanding of U.S.-Japan relations. The program focuses on three main areas: the Public Speaker Series, Public Outreach outside of Washington, and Public Outreach through Culture and Arts.

Both the Public Speaker Series and Public Outreach outside of Washington programs feature an influential American or Japanese speaker who presents on a timely topic of relevance to U.S.-Japan relations and engages in discussion with participants. Public Outreach through Culture and Arts promotes public discussions on the U.S.-Japan relationship through events tied to cultural celebrations and arts, such as film.
