On Oʻahu, we’ve advocated for local policies to protect our residents and visitors from secondhand smoke, make our streets safer, prevent the spread of COVID-19, and more. In addition to local level solutions, our statewide coalitions tirelessly work to advance public health policy at the state legislature.
On Oʻahu, we have numerous coalitions dedicated to different aspects of public health. We believe policy change should be powered by community, so if you’d like to support our work please join our general email list, or for more information you may contact a program staff by selecting the specific area of interest at the very bottom of the page. Follow us on social media, and consider joining our coalitions.
