Solidarity Network with Migrants Japan (SMJ) was founded in 1997, and we are starting anew as a Specified Nonprofit Corporation.
With the drop in birthrate, aging of the population, and the population decline, there has been a national debate on “accepting” migrants, but only in the context of them as a source of labor while neglecting the rights of non-Japanese residents. On the other hand, media has reported on the many ways in which the second generation of the newcomer migrants have excelled and made names for themselves here in Japan. Both of these stories illuminate the fact that our society has and will undoubtedly continue to become multi-ethnic and multicultural.
At a time when a just immigration policy is to be desired, we, at Solidarity Network with Migrants Japan, take pride in having an ever more important role. We have a renewed determination to work even harder to realize our vision for a better and more just multi-ethnic and multicultural coexistent society.
You are cordially invited as we mark this joyous occasion of our incorporation as a Specified Nonprofit Corporation. Please find the details of the reception below. We will be honored to have your presence at the reception where we look forward to celebrating our new beginning with as many of you as possible who have shared our past hardships and joyous moments, as well as those with whom we hope to share our future walk.
Let us march on together until we have a multi-ethnic and multicultural coexistent society in its true form where labor-employer equality is secured.
