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.

Weaving Voices: Connecting Communities through Hawai‘i Life Stories
A series of public events where we explore communities in transition by weaving together voices from oral history recordings together with voices from today. In this powerful shared space, we listen, remember, laugh, cry, and carry forward lessons of resilience and ingenuity, connecting past, present, and futures.
