Micronesian Voices in Hawai'i

Honolulu, 3-4 April 2008

 

“Micronesian Voices in Hawai'i” was a unique opportunity to listen to and learn from Micronesian leaders and others in the community about steps they are taking to address some of the challenges faced by new migrants from the Republic of the Marshall Islands, the Federated States of Micronesia, and the Republic of Palau. Spurred by the Compacts of Free Association between their countries and the United States, many Micronesians have moved to Hawai'i. Many are serving our community in professional capacities across the state. Others, however, are facing challenges in their struggle to achieve economic self-sufficiency. In the following videos, panelists and featured speakers talk about some of the challenges faced by migrants and about community-based initiatives that are responding to these challenges. The final video contains conference recommendations for policymakers.
