Weaving Voices: Looking to Our Past for New Political Visions

October 20 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

Tuesday October 20th, 5:30 – 6:30
You can RSVP HERE

 

What kind of leadership do we need to take us out of COVID-19? What power does our vote have in this upcoming election? In the next event in our Weaving Voices series, we continue to explore communities in transition by using oral histories to revisit the era of economic change from plantations to tourism, and political change with the return of AJAs and rise of the Democratic Party in the 1950s. In those times of tumult, new political leaders brought forth a strong and different vision for the future of Hawai‘i, sparking huge transformation. Join us for a conversation that weaves together past, present, and future to make political change together.

Speakers:
Sandy Ma, Executive Director of Common Cause Hawai’i
Colin Moore, UHM Center for Public Policy
Voices from the oral histories:
John Ushijima, William Quinn, William Richardson, Helene Hale, Robert Oshiro
 

This event was organized in partnership with the UHM Center for Oral History, the Hawai‘i Council for the Humanities, Hawaiʻi Public Radio, and the King Kamehameha V Judiciary History Center.
