      Stuart Ishimaru Recommended to EEOC by Senate Democratic Leader Tom
      Daschle

      JACL commends Senator Daschle for his consistent and continued
      commitment to ensuring that the APA community is represented on civil
      rights commissions

      San Francisco - The Japanese American Citizens League (JACL), the
      nation's oldest and largest Asian Pacific American (APA) civil rights
      organization, lauds and expresses its deepest gratitude to Senate
      Democratic Leader Tom Daschle for his consistent and continued
      commitment to ensuring that the APA community is represented on civil
      rights commissions - by recommending Paul Igasaki for re-nomination
      to his seat at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC)
      last year and now by recommending Stuart Ishimaru for the vacancy.
      The JACL urges the White House to act on Democratic Leader Daschle's
      recommendation and promptly move Mr. Ishimaru's candidacy forward.

      "We applaud Democratic Leader Daschle's decision to recommend Stuart
      Ishimaru for the EEOC," stated JACL National President Floyd
      Mori. "Senator Daschle clearly understands the importance of having
      qualified people of diverse backgrounds bring their voices and
      experience to the federal civil rights commissions, and Mr. Ishimaru
      is an outstanding choice for the EEOC."

      "Stuart Ishimaru's credentials are impeccable," added John Tateishi,
      JACL National Executive Director. "He will bring years of experience
      and keen insight to the Commission. The Asian Pacific American
      community is fortunate to have public officials of such caliber as
      former commissioner Paul Igasaki and Stuart Ishimaru, and we thank
      them for their service and steadfast commitment to issues of concern
      to our community. The JACL urges the White House to act on this
      recommendation immediately."

      Stuart Ishimaru, a long-time JACL member, received his BA from the
      University of California, Berkeley (1980) and his JD from the
      National Law Center, George Washington University (1983). He has
      long years of federal and community service and in the field of civil
      rights, including: research assistant to U.S. Commission on Wartime
      Relocation and Internment of Civilians (1981); assistant to the
      director at the Lawyers' Committee for Civil Rights Under Law (1982-
      83); graduate course instructor in Equal Employment Opportunity at
      American University; assistant counsel to Committee on the Judiciary
      (1984-91) and professional staff to Committee on Armed Services (1991-
      93) for the U.S. House of Representatives; acting staff director for
      U.S. Commission on Civil Rights (1993-94); counsel to Assistant
      Attorney General (1994-99) and Deputy Assistant Attorney General
      (1999-2001) in the Civil Rights Division of the U.S. Department of
      Justice.

      Stuart Ishimaru is the second name recommended during this
      administration by Democratic Leader Daschle. Last year, after eight
      years of service on the EEOC, Paul Igasaki's candidacy languished at
      the White House for months and failed to receive the administration's
      support. The JACL encourages its members and friends to express
      their appreciation to Senator Daschle for putting forward Stuart
      Ishimaru's name for the EEOC (email: tom_daschle@d...) and to urge
      the White House to act on this recommendation using the JACL website
      at: http://capwiz.com/jacl/mail/oneclick_compose/?alertid=2483051 .

      The Japanese American Citizens League is the nation's oldest and
      largest Asian Pacific American civil and human rights organization.
