Densho Annual Virtual Fundraiser

As summer comes to an end, we are looking ahead to the fall, and to Densho’s annual virtual fundraiser on October 5th.

This year, the theme is “Our Voices Will Not Be Silenced,” and will feature keynote speaker Maggie Tokuda-Hall, author of Love in the Library. Maggie bravely stood up against Scholastic Inc. earlier this year when they attempted to censor her use of terms like “racism” in an author’s note about her grandparents’ incarceration experience. In addition, the program will include a live musical performance by Tomo Nakayama, a poetry reading by traci kato-kiriyama, and will be hosted by Erin Shigaki and Brady Wakayama.

In order to broadcast that message far beyond our corner of the world, we have decided to once again livestream a virtual event so that our community from across the country and around the world can join us. And while we are striving to make this event meaningful and inspiring to you, your attendance and support are of critical importance for us.

Let’s make our resistance as joyful and empowering as possible. Together we will sustain and strengthen the invaluable work of Densho in the process.

Let us know if you have any questions and thank you for being part of this momentous event!
