We Are All COFA Citizens: Re-imagining the Compact Relationship in Hawaii

September 17, 3:30pm - 5:00pm
Mānoa Campus, William S. Richardson School of Law, Classroom 2 Add to Calendar

As we face increased public scrutiny of the Compact of Free Association, and a rise in incidents of discrimination against Micronesians in Hawaii, it is time to re-consider our COFA agreement from both sides of the relationship. While popular discourse dwells on the "free association" clause of the Compact, on this Peace Day/Constitution Day, we will examine the contributions and sacrifices of the entire Micronesian region and what they mean to the US military security.

Speakers: Dina Shek, Associate Faculty Specialist and Co-Director, Health Law Policy Center-Community Projects, William S. Richardson School of Law; and

Joakim “JoJo” Peter, doctoral student in the Special Education program at the College of Education, Univ. of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa;

Moderated by: Carole Petersen, Professor & Director of the Spark M. Matsunaga Institute for Peace and Conflict Resolution
