EJ Working Group

Learn more about the efforts of the Environmental Justice Working Group.

The Environmental Justice Working Group is a joint effort of the Concerned Elders of Wai`anae, American Friends Service Committee, and KAHEA. We are committed to providing a space where these efforts and collaborations can take root and grow.

Through the efforts to educate decision-makers, community monitoring programs, Environmental Justice Youth Academy, and Huaka`i Kāko`o (EJ Bus Tours), a growing hui of community members are getting involved. Together, we are pursuing concrete actions towards environmental justice for Wai`anae Moku. No matter where we live, we all have a role to play in supporting Wai`anae Moku community efforts, as they uphold their collective vision for the future.

We believe:  No community on an island can truly thrive while another suffers unjustly. We are here together, neighbors in a vast Pacific. To succeed, sustainability must be an inclusive movement--a just movement. This means reaching beyond the restoration of our lands and waters from environmental “bads” to the equitable allocation of environmental goods, including nutritious food, clean air & water, recreation, health care, education, transportation, shelter, and safe jobs, for all people in Hawai'i.

The EJ Working Group meets monthly at Leeward Community College Wai`anae Campus (LCC-W) on O`ahu. For more information, contact Candace Fujikane at 877-585-2432 (toll-free) or candace@kahea.org.
