A Nāhululeihiwakuipapa Emerging Professionals Workshop
The Nāhululeihiwakuipapa Subcommittee of the Hawaiʻi Conservation Alliance
Hawaiʻi Conservation Conference 2020 Workshop #201 Engaging in the Political Process to Support ʻĀina Momona - A Nāhululeihiwakuipapa Emerging Professionals Workshop
This workshop will focus on how to engage with the political process here in Hawai'i. Participants will hear from panelists currently involved in affecting change through policy and civic engagement. They will also learn how our actions and diligence, as citizens, are important to shaping the future we wish to see in Hawai'i, and beyond. Guest speaker presentations will teach participants about how to find and interact with their representatives (at all levels of government), hold decision makers accountable, find public meetings, and follow and influence legislation. Together, we can leverage our voices to create representation that is truly responsive to the needs of our communities and 'āina.
