HMWF Chair Shirley Ann Higuchi Writes About Proposed For-Profit

Detention Centers


"The prophets of “American exceptionalism” claim we are better than this, and I believe we are. Our policies should

reflect that, and change should start by curtailing the arbitrary and capricious roundup of immigrants without

criminal records and the use of for-profit detention centers."

 

-Salt Lake Tribune


 







FINAL WEEKS TO SEE SPECIAL EXHIBIT!

On display from February through mid-May 2018, come and explore the Japanese American incarceration experience through archaeological findings from Colorado.

HMWF Chair Shirley Ann Higuchi Writes About the Current Relevance of Japanese American Incarceration

 

"Racism, under whatever justification its supporters can find, is still racism. It goes against what makes us all Americans. There is no racial or religious test for being an American. We should not start one now."

 - USA TODAY


"Setsuko Saito was my mother. My parents met at Heart Mountain. Without 9066, I would not be here. Still, it’s my hope that no future American families will be formed in this way, because our nation’s leaders did not resist the easy call of racism and overreaction."

We rescued an original Heart Mountain Barrack from demolition and brought it back. But there is still much to do. 

Please help us stabilize and preserve this important Historic Structure!
