Personal Story

For me in Hawaiʻi, the “environment” is about home. Hawaiʻi’s natural and cultural resources, Native and local communities, and environmental laws are a big part of what makes this place truly special.

I count it a blessing to live here and work for Earthjustice, and also a kuleana (responsibility) to help achieve a more just and sustainable society and an environmental and clean energy model for the world.

"It's about taking care of the resource over the long-term and for future generations—because that is all we have."
