Teacher Training Workshops in Los Angeles and Seattle
Densho is presenting a teacher training workshop in Los Angeles on Saturday, October 27th and another workshop in Seattle on Thursday, November 15th. These workshops will use materials about the World War II incarceration of Japanese Americans to examine how to use primary sources in the classroom. The workshops will be led by Executive Director Tom Ikeda and Education Consultant Janet Hayakawa. Participants will receive a $100 stipend upon successful completion of the workshop. You can get more information online about the workshops and how to register. Funding for these workshops is provided in part by the Japanese American Confinement Sites Grant Program, administered by the National Park Service.

Sushi & Sake Gala Hiatus
Densho is taking a one-year break from hosting its annual Sushi & Sake Gala. We are going to miss seeing hundreds of familiar faces during this fun friendraising event, but with a very busy fall schedule creating new online products (encyclopedia, new digital repository, new teacher resources, etc.) we decided we had a little too much on our plate. We look forward to seeing you next year at this event!
