On November 17, 2022, ACCESS LA hosted an event in partnership with the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center (JACCC) young professionals network. Museum docents at the Japanese American National Museum (JANM) guided guests through the permanent exhibition, "Common Ground: The Heart of Community."

The exhibit chronicles Japanese American history, beginning in the late 1800s with the early days of the Issei (first generation) pioneers and continuing through World War II incarceration, post-war resettlement, and the redress movement. The tour was followed by a social hour on the JACCC campus, with a Japanese and Jewish American musical guest.
