During last month's Huakaʻi Kākoʻo No Waiʻanae, O'ahu residents had the opportunity to listen to Wai'anae elders tell mo'olelo of the area, talk about environmental injustices facing their community and how to keep informed and take action on environmental issues within our own ahupua'a. Don't miss our next environmental justice bus tour on April 4th! RSVP by following this link. We look forward to seeing you for this important learning opportunity!
Update: The April 4th tour is sold out! If you would like to be put on our waiting list for the next tour (or future tours) please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
