Creating Destiny - Wade Nomura Q&A

Creating Destiny - Wade Nomura Q&A

Sunday, May 02, 2021 at 04:00 PM to 06:00 PM

John Palminteri Hosts a Q&A with Wade Nomura

Wade tells the story of his early life as a Japanese American growing up in the shadow of World War II, viewed with suspicion in the land his family called home for generations. He struggles to find his place in the world as his family grapples with the scars of internment in the Arizona desert for their ancestry.

A chance encounter led to the start of an award-filled career as a BMX racer, living life on the road and giving all for the glory of the win.

His life takes another turn when he falls into a life of service, taking him around the globe from the slums of India to helping those in need in Mexico to hurricane-devastated Puerto Rico. He reflects on his role as Mayor of his hometown facing down the aftermath of some of the largest wildfires in California history and the perils of the global coronavirus pandemic.

A life of twists and turns, adversity, triumph, leadership, love and loss, Wade’s story is an inspirational journey not to be missed.

Proceeds benefit the Save the Alcazar Campaign.
