About DC Anime Club:
DCAC was established in 2003 to introduce and educate people in the
Washington,
DC area about East Asian culture, through viewing and discussion of
Japanese
animation (also known as anime) and Japanese comics (manga). DCAC is a
501(c)(3) not for profit organization, contributions to DC Anime Club
are tax
deductible to the extent allowable under the law.

The club also works to provide a positive, alternative activity to the
youth in
the area by exposing them to foreign culture, encouraging artistic
expression
and creativity, and providing opportunities for participation in
community
activities and leadership.

In addition to our weekly meetings, the club holds an Annual Art Show,
an Annual
Costume fundraising event, and visits local schools to do presentations
on
anime. The club also works with the Smithsonian Freer Gallery and DC
Asian
Pacific American Film Festival on their anime screenings, and has
helped
locally promote performances for Japanese bands such as Puffy Ami Yumi
and Pine
am.

DC Anime Club was founded by Chris Wanamaker (President), Jules Chang
(Vice
President) and Craig Vaughn (Sgt in Arms) on Saturday June 5, 2003. We
have a
strong membership that continues to grow -- most of which are
teenagers.
