The California Nisei College Diploma Project was established to provide community outreach and education for a new law, AB 37. The California Nisei College Diploma Project seeks to identify and support individuals of Japanese descent who were unable to complete their college education in the State of California because of forced removal and incarceration during World War II.
Dreams Finally Realized: The Untold Stories of California Nisei Forced out of Higher Education is the second half of the CA Nisei Project. The goal of Dreams Finally Realized is to collect and share the unheard stories of the Nisei honorees.
