Elaine Yamaguchi named director of California Civil Liberties Public Education Program

Elaine Yamaguchi, a long-time activist in California’s Asian Pacific American community, is the new director of the California State Library’s competitive grant program, the California Civil Liberties Public Education Program (CCLPEP).

Yamaguchi comes to the CCLPEP after nearly eight years as a special assistant to the Speaker of the California Assembly. Prior to her work in the California Assembly, Yamaguchi was managing director of San Francisco’s National Asian American Telecommunications Association, an organization that produces programs by and about Asian Americans on national public television and the San Francisco International Asian American Film Festival.

State Librarian of California Susan Hildreth says of Yamaguchi, "I look forward to working with Elaine and continuing the great activities sponsored by CCLPEP as well as retooling for future activities."

Former CCLPEP director Diane Matsuda says, “We are very fortunate to have Elaine Yamaguchi join the California State Library staff as the new program director of CCLPEP. CCLPEP will definitely benefit from Elaine's interest and dedication in sharing the story about the Japanese American experience during World War II to our broad and diverse community. “

For more information about the CCLPEP or its 2005-2006 Information Packet and Grant Application, please contact Elaine Yamaguchi at (916) 651-0383, or visit the CCLPEP website at http://www.library.ca.gov/cclpep/index.cfm.
