Please Donate Now!

Please consider a donation to Japan-US Citizens for Okinawa Network (JUCON) / Network for Okinawa (NO).

We’re preparing an ad to appear in the Washington Post that will emphasize the widespread opposition to any new base or base expansion; the threat of U.S. plans to the fragile Okinawan ecosystem; and the need for the U.S. to respect democratic process in other nations. JUCON has raised tens of thousands of dollars. And now the Network for Okinawa needs to raise money in the U.S. to make this a true transnational effort. So, please consider donating to our cause. Even small donations make a big difference. And your contributions are tax-deductible.
