As the capital of the United States, Washington D.C. is a cultural and political hub that captures the essence of the entire country. From the monuments and museums to unique neighborhoods, each section of the city reveals a different side of America. The historical landscape, complete with memorials, captures the true story of the country and recognizes the struggle of achieving equality and the American dream. Evidence of the strong friendship between the U.S. and Japan is reflected in the cherry blossom trees and Japanese-American Memorial. This vibrant location truly embodies the 70th JASC’s theme because, as the center of America’s international exchange, it serves to influence and direct the country’s growth. In DC, delegates will have the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in the multiple cultures that shape our nation and interact with some of our country’s greatest leaders.
