“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.
