BACKGROUND

The #TrialoftheCentury starts on October 29! The 21 Juliana v. US youth plaintiffs are taking the federal government to court for violating their constitutional rights by knowingly contributing to climate change. The science-based National Climate Recovery Plan the plaintiffs seek would end the reign of fossil fuels and lead to swift decarbonization. This lawsuit could change everything. There will be rallies at federal courthouses across the country. Join us in Honolulu on October 26 when we stand with these brave young people as they take the federal government to court!

FREE SCHOOL : BANS, WALLS + CAGES : IMMIGRANT JUSTICE NOW!

FREE SCHOOL : BANS, WALLS + CAGES : IMMIGRANT JUSTICE NOW!

banner.png

Anti-immigrant politics and government policies are central to the Trump agenda and have been from the start. The same is true across the world. Everywhere, nationalism is hardening, fascists are being emboldened and empowered, and immigrants are used as scapegoats for the very real problems people – and our planet – face. In the United States, the Trump administration has put in place policies that have further devastated immigrants. The Muslim Ban has re-institutionalized racism in US immigration policy. Deportations are widely being used to frighten and silence people. The violent separation of children from their caregivers has shown us just how much the lives of immigrants are fodder for political games of brinkmanship. This must all stop. We need a new direction, one that understands that anti-immigrant politics are harmful for both immigrants and citizens. At this public forum on immigration, speakers will address both the harms and ways forward so we can realize justice for all.

WHEN : Wednesday, August 8, 6 - 8pm
WHERE : Harris United Methodist Church (20 S Vineyard Blvd)

SPEAKERS:

AMY AGBAYANI, co-chair of the Hawai‘i Friends of Civil Rights, was born in the Philippines and retired from UH Manoa in 2016. She was chair of the InterAgency Council for Immigrant Services, Hawai‘i Civil Rights Commission and Hawai‘i Judicial Selection Commission.

DOUG CHIN is the Lieutenant Governor of Hawai‘i and former Attorney General from 2015-2018. As Attorney General, he led other states in suing President Trump for banning travel from Muslim-majority nations into the United States based on discrimination.

CLARE HANUSZ is an attorney and the founder of Aloha Immigration.

JOHN KAWAMOTO was an analyst for the State Legislature before retiring. All of his grandparents were immigrants. He is a member on the Hawai‘i J20+ Immigration Committee, where he has taken a lead role in advocating for the Ho‘okipa Bill in the Hawai‘i State Congress.

HAKIM OUANSAFI is the President of the Muslim Association of Hawai‘i.

JOSH WISCH is the Executive Director of the Hawai‘i ACLU.

NICOLE WOO is the Chair of Harris United Methodist Church's Sanctuary ministry team.

FREE SCHOOL : Ethics in Politics

FREE SCHOOL : Ethics in Politics

Weinstein Ethics Lecture: "Ethics in Politics"

WHEN : Tuesday, August 7 /- 6 - 7:30pm

WHEN : Shidler College of Business, BUSAD A-102

to RSVP

Corruption is rife in today's political climate from Citizens United to the Koch Brothers and other corporation backed lobbyists. The average cost of running a campaign excludes most everyday people from running meanwhile the "salary" of an elected official is really small - most town council members, state senators, even Congressman can't afford to commit the time necessary because it won't pay the bills--meaning that only folks with certain types of careers can run (lawyers, businessman, wealthy). Is the political system rigged against only those who can afford to play the game - run a campaign, survive on political salary which in most cases are very low? Meanwhile, how do we prevent big business from influencing our representatives on important decisions? Should term limits or caps on political spending be imposed? These and other issues will be taken up on this promising panel.

This lecture features:

  • Barbara Boxer, Former U.S. Senator for California

  • Colleen Hanabusa, U.S. Representative for Hawaii's 1st Congressional District

Licensed attorneys are eligible for 1.5 CLE credits. Sign up via RSVP link.
