One such friend, Wesley Julian, producer and director of Tohoku Tomo, will join us in a virtual conversation about the rebuilding and support that has occurred over the last 5 years. Wesley is a former JET, a current JETAA Chicago president, and former Consulate General of Japan media relations coordinator. His knowledge of and insights into the people who have made a difference in the rebuilding of the Tohoku area will make for an informative and inspiring conversation!
During our meeting, we will watch interviews (in Japanese with English subtitles or in English) conducted by Wesley and his film team for the 113 Project before having a Q&A session with him virtually regarding Tohoku Tomo, the 113 Project, and how the area and its people are recovering 5 years on.
