The Friends of Minidoka engages in and supports education, research and historic preservation of the WWII incarceration experience. We strive to pass on the history, legacy, and lessons of civil liberties through transforming and inspiring experiences for the general public and those with personal and familial ties to Minidoka.
The annual pilgrimage to the Minidoka National Historic Site in Idaho strives to honor the generations that were involuntarily sent to Minidoka by sharing stories of their imprisonment with the younger generation and others unfamiliar with the story so that in the future due process of the law will be demanded so no single group is targeted again.
