About us and this space.
We are a small, women-led team that explores environmental justice from right here in Hawai‘i.
The social impacts of the climate crisis, pandemic, and racial reckonings have a lot of us questioning our society's addiction to capitalism and extractivism. But here in Hawai‘i we didn't need a pandemic to tell us that we need a radical shift in the way we relate to land and each other. For centuries there has been a wave of movement for Aloha ‘Āina, all across the islands. This stuff is real. Resistance is core to the beauty we experience today. And it's happening all around oceania and the globe.
So we're dreaming up a space where we can talk story with local folks and leaders in our community to learn more about what environmental justice—or injustice looks like here in Hawai‘i. We want to envision our collective liberation through the eyes of the organizers, practitioners, scholars, aunties and uncles whose work embodies the remedies we need to return to an economy and society rooted in compassion, connection, and care.
