Premium Gift 1: Custom Minidoka Pin

This custom enamel pin is a nod to the Honor Roll at Minidoka, built by Japanese American incarcerees to memorialize the young men and women who volunteered or were drafted into the military from that camp. Designed by yonsei artist Kiku Hughes, it’s the latest in Densho’s series of pins representing the camps where Japanese Americans were confined during WWII.


Premium Gift 2: America for Americans by Erika Lee

We can’t fully understand this current moment without a solid grasp on the history that brought us here. For that reason, we think that historian Erika Lee’s lucid recounting of America’s shameful history of xenophobia is required reading. America for Americans explains how xenophobia works, why it has endured, and how it threatens America. It is a necessary corrective and spur to action for any concerned citizen.
