Tonight Is The Juvenile Justice Forum

If can, please join us for this important event.

Native Hawaiian youth are over-represented at most stages of the juvenile justice system, beginning at the point of arrest. Please join us for a community conversation about what we can do to prevent our ‘opio from getting caught in the system by focusing on healing, forgiveness, cultural strengths & support for families.
