MVFHR board member Toshi Kazama is on his way to Japan to do some valuable MVFHR work there. Toshi will be speaking to several public audiences, meeting privately with victims' families, and working with local organizers to plan an MVFHR speaking tour in 2010.
The public audiences Toshi will be addressing include several university groups, the Japanese Religious Network Against the Death Penalty, the Japan Federation of Bar Associations, the Police Headquarters, two hospitals, a meeting with officials from a juvenile detention center. He will also be meeting with members of Ocean, our Japanese MVFHR affiliate.
We'll have a more detailed report on the trip once Toshi returns.
