2011 Oregon Nikkei Endowment Honorees

Dr. Homer and Miyuki Yasui were honored for their tremendous contributions to the community with the Paving The Way Award and Mr. Albert Abe was awarded a new award, The Sakura Award, for his achievements in serving so many Japanese American organizations. All three were instrumental in launching the Oregon Nikkei Legacy Center, a history and culture organization specializing in educating about the Japanese American World War II experience and the protections of civil rights, a project founded by the Oregon Nikkei Endowment in 1998.
