How did you hear of Hawaii People's Fund?
i work here

Hawai‘i People's Fund Executive Director since June, 2003

This is my best job ever!
After 30+ years in public and community education, grassroots activism and organizing, social justice movements and more, I was asked to take my frontline experience and work in a supportive role. Serving this public foundation for social change allows just that.

It's challenging and rewarding work and can only be accomplished with the support of many.

More restaurants are providing healthy and locally sourced foods. More of us have demanded this and appreciate the response of food services. Some are pricey, but locally sourced edibles are working their way into even plate lunches.

Drop the I-Word and Let Dreams Live!

Social change is inevitable, if not always what we imagine or desire. Attitudes that were widely held a few generations ago are now generally considered inconceivable and ideas currently considered to be way out on the fringe may someday be dead-center in the mainstream. Bold actions taken by a few that most of us would not choose or even understand often open the way for lasting change.

Alternatives to Incarceration

Ohana Ho'opakele on Hawai'i Island has been working for years to gain acceptance of culturally appropriate alternatives to prison that can promote actual healing. Over 500 people have already signed their petition to establish pu'uhonua instead of building more prisons.

There is another America.

Writer Barbara Kingsolver on Occupy in her own Tennessee and beyond:

We have never been here before, not right here exactly, you and me together in the golden and gritty places all at once, on deadline, no fooling around this time, no longer walking politely around the dire colossus, the so-called American Way of consecrated corporate profits and crushed public compassion. There is another America.…

Community Funds & Action!

          REMEMBERING CHINATOWN

From its earliest grantmaking, in 1972-3 into the 1990s, Hawaii People’s Fund supported community organizing in Honolulu’s Chinatown. The critical grassroots groups were Third Arm and People Against Chinatown Evictions (PACE).

 

Several continuous Hawaii People’s Fund constituents were part of these groups and one asked if we might help preserve more of the stories from this important period of strategic activism,

 

Hawaii People’s Fund worked with a UH student-intern in the spring/summer of 2016. Sonja Cookman put this article together. She met with about a dozen organizers from those days. She also scanned a number of original documents, organizational newsletters and media coverage. Hawaii People’s Fund was able to digitize a couple hundred old slides.

 

The original activists plan to come together to archive more of their memories. Hawaii People’s Fund hopes this article, the first source documents, and the ongoing work of the surviving organizers will help preserve the history and serve to inspire and inform continued struggles against evictions and gentrification and activism for access to health care, housing and dignity for all.

Click the title above or open the document below to read Sonjaʻs paper.
