Today and next Thursday, The Value of Hawai‘i 2 editors Aiko Yamashiro and Noelani Goodyear-Ka‘opua will be back on Hawaii Public Radio‘s Town Square, broadcast live from 5–6 pm (HST), to discuss “Island Style and Youth Activism” with John “Prime” Hina, James Koshiba, and Lisa Grandinetti.
The Value of Hawai‘i 2 collaboration with Town Square and its host Beth-Ann Kozlovich involves a series of four panels that address how we all might work together to create a better Hawaiʻi and assess the issues of Pacific Islander immigration, spirituality in community building, and island-style activism among youths. Since its inception in 1999, Town Square has provided a lively forum for political, social, educational and cultural issues. Listeners are encouraged to join the discussion and provide their own insights.
