Advocacy priorities


Hānai i ke keiki, ola ka lāhui

Nurture the child and the people thrive

Improving the ecosystem that surrounds our keiki and ensuring its impact on their ability to learn is critical in our effort to achieve our vision for a thriving lāhui. Social, economic, governmental, and environmental systems all affect the ability of our children to thrive in education, in their careers, and in life.

By advocating to improve the systems that touch our keiki, together we can empower student success, fuel a dynamic local economy, promote leadership that will protect the rights and identity of Native Hawaiians, and transform Hawai‘i for a better future.
