For 20 years, Densho has been promoting justice by preserving the stories of Japanese American incarceration. Densho’s 20th Anniversary dinner gala is a special opportunity to raise funds to help train more teachers to examine the causes and impact of racism.
“This message, these stories, and the voices of Japanese Americans are needed now more than ever for discussions about racism and bigotry in America,” Tom Ikeda said in a letter.
The gala will take place on Saturday, Sept. 24 at the Sheraton Seattle Downtown, including a catered dinner, a keynote speaker, and live and silent auctions. The Preliminary Program is from 5:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Ticket prices are $200. The tickets for members of community organizations are $150. Auction items include: a PRIUS v Three Model 2017 in Sea Glass Pearl, Mariners Suite for a 2017 game and catering up to $500, a Roger Shimomura print, family membership to Seattle Art Museum, and roundtrip tickets to Asia on Delta Airlines.
