About National JACL Credit Union
In 1943, the National Japanese American Citizens League Credit Union was formed as a state-chartered credit union in Salt Lake City, started by a group of Japanese Americans who were members of a civil liberties organization called the Japanese American Citizens League (JACL). The organization was primarily developed to help assimilate Japanese Americans back into society who had been interned during World War II. Over 125,000 Japanese Americans were imprisoned in a small desert town camp of Topaz, Utah and suffered physical, emotional and financial losses after their release by President Roosevelt. The JACL was one of many groups formed to help them deal with those issues.
The JACL’s credit union was headed by a man named Hito Okada, who gathered 10 men to organize the nonprofit with an initial deposit of $2,435; today, the credit union remains strong, opening membership to members of the JACL and their families.
