We are arranging a photo workshop for people with multicultural background, where we will learn how to project “ koko ” (here) on places where we belong, through the lens. The instructor will be Nobuko Oyabu , a photojournalist. The works created through the workshop will be exhibited in Tokyo in the fall of 2019.

SMJ launched the migrant’s rights campaign 2020 'koko ni iru’ with the aim of creating a platform to share various options so that we can secure the rights and dignity of migrants and people with multicultural background. We inform the society that these people are here in Japan, 'koko ni iru , and make policy proposals toward 2020.
SMJ has just released a booklet for latest proposal of immigrants policy. We are planning to publishe english version in August 2019.
