Ho’ōla Nā Pua Advocacy Awards: Recognizing those committed to the systemic changes needed to end exploitation

By October 26, 2019 No Comments
The Ho’ōla Nā Pua Advocacy Awards recognize individuals, organizations, and companies, who have joined the fight against sexual exploitation by taking a courageous public stand on behalf of vulnerable children in Hawaii. These individuals and organizations are committed to supporting the systemic changes needed to end exploitation and are strong supporters of Ho’ola Na Pua’s mission, programs, and service to our community.

 

These awards are given out annually. This year the following individuals were recognized for their significant contributions to our community at the annual Pearl Gala. We thank them for their selfless commitment to ending sex trafficking. We recognize each of these individuals for their contributions to this fight. Let’s turn the tide against trafficking together as we prevent exploitation and care for the exploited.

“There is a need for a response, a coordinated effort. It is hard for me to sit on the sidelines and not do anything. I want to use my 10 years of experience to help in any way I can.”
