The CJACLC was established in 1998 by leaders from across the state of California to proactively and collectively address the challenges, changes, and issues affecting the Japanese American community by promoting a statewide network and coordinating strategic statewide and regional partnerships. It is a project of the Japanese American National Network of Community Services, a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.

Since its inception, the CJACLC has acted as a catalyst for several Japanese American cultural and community preservation and leadership development programs. It has led the way in efforts to preserve and revitalize California’s historic Japantowns, launched a leadership exchange program for delegations of Japanese American community leaders to engage in dialogue with key Japanese leaders, and created a summer program to provide young leaders with an opportunity to learn through internships at community-based organizations.
