Maui Nui Food Alliance Policy Training and Q&A on March 28th

Are you interested in learning more about policy, advocacy and the legislative process? The Maui Nui Food Alliance (MNFA) and the Hawaiʻi Public Health Institute (HIPHI) are hosting a policy training, mid-session legislative recap, and Q&A on Tuesday, March 28th at 12:30 PM with Nate Hix, the HIPHI Food Access Policy & Advocacy Coordinator.

MNFA invites beginner and experienced policy advocates interested in impacting our local food system to attend this training, focusing on the Hawaiʻi State Legislative process and the progress of key food system bills. “Several vital bills are still in play at the legislature this year and they could use extra support to pass,” Hix explained. “This is a crucial time to take action and help shape Hawaii’s future.”

As pre-work before the policy training and Q&A, it is requested that all participants watch the Policy and Advocacy Training Series, with guest speakers from Hawaiʻi Appleseed Center for Law & Economic Justice, Hawaiʻi Public Health Institute, Hawai’i Children’s Action Network Speaks, and State of Hawaiʻi Public Access Room. This recording shares how “to become an expert in the process of the Legislature,” where you can “learn the how-tos from creating a Capitol account, tracking your bill from committee to committee, submitting testimony, accessing others’ testimony, and identifying changes to the bill— and other tips and tricks as well.”

Register here to attend the MNFA Policy Training and Q&A. Email mauinuifoodalliance@gmail.com if you have any questions about the training or the work of the Maui Nui Food Alliance.
