What Your Investment Means
Ever wonder where your gift goes? Here's are some examples of what we need to make this important work possible:
$35 - Printing and photocopying to deliver 700 pieces of public testimony or 700 pages of petition signatures to a decision-maker or public official.
$275 - Community event
$500 - Launch an action alert or letter-writing campaign
$700 - Organize a community petition drive
$1,000 - Transportation and supplies for a community huaka`i, like an Environmental Justice Bus Tour or a community access on Mauna Kea. Huaka`i get people out on the land and in the water, and are a powerful and effective way to get people involved in defending Hawai`i's lands and waters.
$5,000 - Enables us to host a law student in our legal internship program. These internships bring important legal capacity to our work and communities, and provide a unique and important training ground for young lawyers in Hawai`i working on environmental protection and cultural, indigenous rights.
$18,000 - One community organizer
Everyday, we're working to empower people in our communities to defend the lands, ocean, and way of life we treasure in Hawai`i nei. Because empowered communities are what creates real and meaningful change.
We can't do it without you! KAHEA accepts no federal or corporate monies. We're doing it taro roots-style, powered by your grassroot giving! Please give today!
