Not a Virus Shirt

By: Lori Williamson | Item of the Day | June 13, 2022

Last Friday was our dear colleague Hannah Novillo-Erickson's last day at MNHS. This is one of the many important additions she collected during her time here.
This tshirt, produced by Sai Xiong of Saint Paul, was created in response to the international COVID-19 crisis and subsequent racism directed at Asian communities. 
Thank you, Hannah!
