As president of the Japanese-American Student Union of D.C., Kazu Koyama knew he had to do something after watching newscasts and videos of a magnitude 9.0 earthquake hitting Japan on March 11, then triggering a tsunami that destroyed much of the country's northern coast.
"We held an emergency meeting the next day and said: Let's do something, what can we do to raise awareness and what can we do to make this a long-term project?" said Mr. Koyama, a George Washington University sophomore. "We felt really helpless."
"The media can be shortsighted," Mr. Koyama said. "We want to maintain awareness among American people."
