What is Ties That
Ties That Bind began as a conference held in 1998, which examined
issues concerning the future of the Japanese American community.
Over 400 Japanese Americans gathered from all over California to
discuss what the future would mean for the community and its historic
neighborhoods, and how to protect the future of Little Tokyo for
generations to come.
This conference gave
way to more community discussions about ongoing issues and questions
pertaining to Little Tokyo and the Nikkei community. In April of
2002 a more focused gathering was held, called Ties That Bind 2,
cultivating a more specific discussion geared towards the preservation
of Little Tokyo.
So what is Ties That
Ties That Bind 3 (TTB3)
is a conference to discuss, strategize, and promote the goal of
preserving and revitalizing Little Tokyo as an historic ethnic neighborhood
for future generations of Nikkei and others to enjoy. Workshops,
speakers, and community interaction will allow participants to celebrate
Little Tokyo and be a part of a pioneering event that will address
issues pertaining to preservation of our heritage.
