Effectuating needed change through the U.S. political process
It’s difficult for the People of Hawaiʻi to get involved in a political process when they feel government is corrupt, does not represent their interest, caters to special interest, and cannot be trusted.
This is especially true for Native Hawaiians who have had their Kingdom stolen, then disenfranchised and marginalized as a People in their own land.
Given the above, it’s no wonder why Hawaiʻi does not engage in the political process. Hawaiʻi has the lowest voting % in America at 47% (2016). In comparison, Minnesota is the highest at 74.5%. Unfortunately, Hawaiʻi’s non-voting majority has no representation and no voice. Politicians simply do not represent non-voters. This situation fosters and perpetuates inequalities and detriments for the People of Hawaiʻi and especially it’s host culture.
However, there is a fix. Instead of not engaging in the Political Process and continuing the status quo, we can engage, register to vote, and vote for change. Together we can, together we can rise! Vote for change 2020!
It's Time to be in the Tent and at the Table!
