Membership

Joining as a member shows your commitment to the JACL SF chapter and our civil rights values. It is also a great way to keep informed on our activities, as membership includes print and digital subscription to our chapter’s quarterly newsletter. 

 

Member benefits extend to JACL’s national level, including a FREE digital subscription to the Pacific Citizen, JACL’s national newspaper. You can read more about JACL national member benefits here.
