Try Think: Hulihia conversation series

May 12, 6:00pm - 7:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Online

Try Think events are opportunities for small groups of diverse voices to speak and be heard. Each conversation will be led by a thoughtful facilitator, to help to create a space where we feel valued as full people. We need many voices to do this right, and all are welcome to attend. Each conversation topic is inspired by a Value of Hawai?i Hulihia essay, which can be read for free online at This innovative Try Think: Hulihia conversation series is cosponsored by the following organizations: Ceeds of Peace, Center for Biographical Research, ??Hawai?i Community Foundation?, Matsunaga Institute for Peace?, N? Mea Hawai?i / Native Books, Pacific Islands Development Program?, and Waiwai Collective. Each session has multiple conversation topics. Please register for one topic of your choice. "Lessons from Jojo: Organizing Side-by-Side with Power, Heart and Grace" with Mara Mahoney and Seru Tagivakatini, Facilitators (A conversation exploring ways to organize across different communities, rooted in Micronesian/Pacific Islander experiences). "Writing in the Path of Our Ancestors: Ke Ea Hawai’i Student Council" with Ric Ornellas, Facilitator (A conversation centered around amplifying youth voices and taking control of narratives).
