Honolulu Civil Beat presents a one-on-one interview with Hawai‘i Attorney General Doug Chin, who drew national attention for filing the state’s lawsuit that ultimately halted President Donald Trump’s revised executive order on immigration.

Join us for this rare community talk-story with your attorney general, as we spotlight Hawai‘i’s role in the national conversation about the travel ban. This intimate conversation, moderated by Civil Beat's Yunji De Nies, will serve as a jumping-off point for further discussions throughout the Seventh Art Stand.

Opening reception in the Luce Pavilion. After the talk, enjoy food and wine and learn more about what local organizations are doing in the community to help the islands’ immigrant and refugee populations. The reception will lead into the opening-night concert featuring Syrian visual artist Kevork Mourad at 4pm.
