LTSC is part of a leadership team for Sustainable Little Tokyo (SLT), a community-driven initiative of over 100 organizations working to ensure a healthy, equitable and culturally rich Little Tokyo for generations to come. SLT is committed to pursuing a community-wide vision for Little Tokyo, while continuing to honor the neighborhood’s deep history as a center for Japanese American communities and culture.
On August 3, 2017, LTSC broke ground on the multipurpose sports facility and community center Paul I. Terasaki Budokan, marking an important step toward fulfilling a decades-old community vision. The facility will serve as the community’s “Home Court for All,” connecting youth and seniors alike with the rich history and culture of Little Tokyo.
