Since the start of the pandemic, Hale Hawai’i has held protests around Maui to send elected officials a forceful message that residents are done with inadequate leadership during this pandemic. Maui has faced an exponential growth of positive cases while seeing little to no effort to keep the residence of Maui safe.
Hale Hawai’i formed as a grassroots organization to help Hawai’i and its leaders to keep the Hawaiian islands safe from COVID-19. On March 6th community members held a silent demonstration with banners, followed by a candlelit remembrance for the lives lost at sunset while community members. Kumu Kimokeo Kapahulehua, a pillar of the Maui community, opened the candlelit vigil with a prayer.
