Tohoku Tomo: JET alum returning to Japan to document ongoing JET alum and international relief efforts in Tohoku

Wesley Julian (Miyagi-ken, 2008-10) is heading to Japan with a small film crew to make a video that will share the story of JET alums and others who have made and continue to make a difference in Tohoku, Japan.

The project is called Tohoku Tomo and just launched a Kickstarter campaign.  For more information and to donate, go to: 

In the video below, Wesley, who spoke at his students’ graduation on 3/11 just before the earthquake struck, explains the project and its significance. He currently works for the Japanese Consulate in Chicago, though the Tohoku Tomo project is something he is doing independently of his work.
