Colin Moore, director of the Public Policy Center at the University of Hawaii — Manoa, Elizabeth Fujiwara of Fujiwara and Rosenbaum, an attorney specializing in civil rights and employment discrimination and Ed Hudson, Bank of Hawaii’s vice president and director of development of its People Services Group will be our guest speakers.

Psst…spread the word and invite your friends and family! Complimentary pupus and no-host bar — all ages welcome!
