Giving Brings Hope: Ippei Torii, Foreign Worker Advocate
Ippei Torii heads an NPO that provides assistance for foreign workers in Japan. In recognition of his work, he was named a Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report Hero by the U.S. Department of State, becoming the first Japanese national to receive the honor. As we follow Torii, we are confronted by an inconvenient truth from which Japanese society has averted its eyes. With Japan shifting its stance on immigration, how will its people adapt and face reality? We explore this key issue of our time.
