GIDDY UP-DATE NEWSLETTER: Remembering Camp Amache

Mar 22, 2022

Hey Colorado, 

We’re so excited to share with you that last Friday, President Biden signed our Amache National Historic Site Act into law. I was honored to be by his side. 

This bill will incorporate Camp Amache in Granada, where thousands of Japanese-Americans were forced into incarceration during WWII, into our National Park System. 

Colorado communities were the driving force behind this bill. The new National Historic Site will honor those who were imprisoned and help educate future generations about this dark chapter of our nation’s history. 

Stay tuned for more developments from Washington. 

Senator John Hickenlooper
