With Speaker Kanoko Kamata from Community Organizing Japan (COJ)
Part of the Brown Bag Luncheon Series
This month's Brown Bag Luncheon will feature Kanoko Kamata, co-founder and former Executive Director of Community Organizing Japan (COJ). In 2013, Ms. Kamata launched COJ with her colleagues to train nonprofit organizations, union and youth in the community organizing framework, as well as offer coaching sessions for grassroots campaigns for women’s rights, victims of sex crimes, post-disaster recovery, and other issues. She is currently at Harvard conducting research on grassroots leadership development in Japan and the U.S.
Each month on the second Tuesday, people who enjoy talking about Japan bring their lunch to our office at 50 Milk Street. This event is free and open to the public - one small way we share Japan with Boston. The Brown Bag Series is an ongoing occasion to gather and talk about Japan together. Speakers are selected from across New England as well as special visiting guests. After a brief presentation about the speaker's unique Japan experience or specialty, we enjoy a group discussion together on the topic.
All Brown Bag meetings are from 12-1p on the 5th floor of 50 Milk St. After signing the log-book at the front desk, proceed up the elevators on the left to the 5th floor. Please feel free to bring your own lunch.
