United For A Multicultural Japan Charity Profile

The number of foreign nationals resident in Japan steadily increased throughout the 1980s. In 1993 the number registered in accordance with the alien registration law reached 1,320,748. International marriages between Japanese and non-Japanese spouses also increased between 1970 and 1990.

United for a multicultural Japan was established to bring together these individuals, spouses, and families of international members in to focus on three main areas:

1. UMJ is committed to uniting to promote and defend the rights of foreign nationals in Japan. Our efforts involve educating the Japanese government about our needs and making recommendations as to how to improve the situation occupied by foreign residents. Projects include the advocation of voting rights for permanent residents, legal rights of foreign spouses and long-term residents, as well as basic human rights of individual people, UMJ members, and the community as a whole.

2. UMJ was established to allow members to exchange support, information, and cooperation for mutal professional and personal benefit. Through this exchange members will be able to actively utilize and contribute to the business environment in Japan. Through the sharing of experiences, members will be able to take advantage of information gained from several people, thereby increasing their opportunities for gaining satisfying occupations.

3. UMJ will provide a community and network of social contacts for those in the international community. Families consisting of international members will be able to find others in similar situations and cultural and linguistic variety within the family unit will be acknowledged as an advantage. The communication and support available will assist people in accomplishing various processes necessary in daily life.

UMJ was established to provide a forum for foreign spouses of Japanese and permanent residents who share many common experiences and to unite our efforts in improving the living environment for the international community and society as a whole.
The number of foreign nationals resident in Japan steadily increased throughout the 1980s. In 1993 the number registered in accordance with the alien registration law reached 1,320,748; not included in this number are non-visa tourists in Japan fewer than 90 days, children under 2 months old, and foreign diplomatic service personnel.

International marriages between Japanese and non-Japanese spouses also increased between 1970 and 1990. From 1975, the number of Japanese men marrying foreign women from China, Korea, and the Philippines surpassed the number of Japanese women marrying foreigners, thereby reversing the historical trend.

Although foreign spouses share many common experiences, until now there has not been any organization in Japan that can provide a community for them.

UMJ was established to bring together these individuals, spouses, and families of international members in order to exchange support, information, and professional and personal cooperation for mutual benefit.

The organization is committed to uniting to promote and defend the rights of foreign nationals in Japan. Our efforts involve educating the Japanese government about our needs and making recommendations as to how to improve the situation occupied by legal foreign residents. Projects include the advocation of voting rights for permanent residents, legal rights of foreign spouses and permanent residents, as well as basic human rights of individual people, UMJ members, and the community as a whole.
