Does Hawai'i Welcome Immigrants?

A Zócalo/Daniel K. Inouye Institute “Talk Story” Event

hosted by HPR and Daniel K Inouye Institute

WHEN : Thursday, October 17, 2019, 7:30 PM

WHERE : Artistry Honolulu, 461 Cooke St.

Moderated by Catherine Cruz, Host, Hawai‘i Public Radio’s “The Conversation”

The history of modern Hawai‘i has been defined by immigration, from the Chinese, Japanese, Portuguese, and Puerto Ricans imported to work on 19th-century plantations, to the Filipino, Korean, and Micronesian migrants who make possible today’s growing tourism and hospitality industry. Arrivals from around the world have shaped and reshaped the islands’ economy and culture, and made Hawai‘i a global crossroads. But some arrivals have faced ostracism and discrimination. To what extent does contemporary Hawai‘i embrace its immigrant past and present? Have Hawai‘i residents generally been welcoming to newcomers? And what part will immigration play as the state struggles with inequality in a changing world? Former Hawai‘i attorney general Doug Chin, Yale University historian Gary Okihiro, former Pacific Gateway Center deputy director Terrina Wong, and immigration attorney Clare Hanusz visit Zócalo to discuss the role that immigration has played in the past, present, and future of Hawai‘i.

Street parking is available. Valet parking is available for $7.

Founder of the Community Food Security Coalition, ANDY FISHER has been a leading force in the food security and food justice movement for the past 25 years. He led national campaigns that have brought over $200 million to community groups for food security and farm-to-school projects. He is the author of Big Hunger: The Unholy Alliance Between Corporate America and Anti-Hunger Groups (2017).

Hunger is a vital issue in Hawai'i. According to the 2016 Hunger in America report, 1 in 8 island residents struggle with food insecurity, including 1 in 6 children. During the last legislative session, a coalition of anti-poverty and agricultural organizations advocated that Hawai‘i join the Double Up Food Bucks program, which provides additional funds to families using the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program to purchase healthy fruits and vegetables. Gov. Ige signed the legislation, but there is much more to be done. Fisher is a critical voice in this important conversation. 

Fisher's talk is presented by the Hawai‘i Community Foundation and the UH Mānoa College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources

Co-Sponsors: College of Social Sciences, The Food Basket, Hawai‘i Good Food Alliance, Hawai'i Appleseed, Kahala Hotel & Resort, Public Policy Center, UH Alumni Relations, UH Better Tomorrow Speaker Series

"The Ben Hecht Story: Lessons of the Holocaust for the Age of Trump"

Brown Bag Biography: Julien Gorbach

WHEN : September 12, 12:00pm - 1:15pm
WHERE : Mānoa Campus, Kuykendall 410

What does America’s response to the Holocaust have to do with the controversies we face today in the Trump era, over white supremacy, immigration, fake news, threats to democracy and “America First”? Dr. Gorbach will discuss the life, work and current relevance of Ben Hecht, the legendary “Shakespeare of Hollywood,” a Chicago crime reporter and leading Hollywood screenwriter who played a critical role in history by shattering the American media silence about the Nazi’s Final Solution to the Jewish Question. Hecht’s calls to save “the soul of man” is the focus of his recently published biography, The Notorious Ben Hecht: Iconoclastic Writer and Militant Zionist (Purdue University Press, 2019).

Julien Gorbach, author of The Notorious Ben Hecht: Iconoclastic Writer and Militant Zionist

Boston native Julien Gorbach is an assistant professor of journalism in the School of Communications at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Gorbach earned his doctorate at the Missouri School of Journalism, and was a newspaper reporter for 10 years. His book The Notorious Ben Hecht: Iconoclastic Writer and Militant Zionist was published by Purdue University Press. His essay “Not Your Grandpa’s Hoax: A Comparative History of Fake News,” appeared in the Spring 2018 issue of American Journalism, and his studies about Hecht have been published in Journalism History and Literary Journalism Studies.
