HMWF Chair Shirley Ann Higuchi Pens Op-Ed for USA Today

"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."

Our Chair Shirley Ann Higuchi addresses recent comments citing the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans and their families as justification for a registry of immigrants from Muslim countries. Read the whole piece at USA TODAY.


Thank you for coming to the 2016 Heart Mountain Pilgrimage!

We welcomed over 250 former Japanese American World War II incarcerees, their families and friends, HMWF leadership, renowned public and political figures, and local community members to the Heart Mountain Interpretive Center for two days filled with dynamic presentations, inspirational speeches, food, history, exhibits, recalling memories and making new ones. We had a great time and we hope all who attended did as well. 

For the 2017 Pilgrimage
July 28-29, 2017

Please help us stabilize and preserve this important Historic Structure!
