National Human Trafficking Awareness Day | Hawaii 2022

Hoʻōla Nā Pua on National Human Trafficking Awareness Day 2022

Mahalo piha to all that came out to raise awareness across all the islands in Hawaii!

As Mayor Rick Blangiardi said yesterday, “We must condemn and hold accountable the perpetrators and forces that seek to rob and destroy the lives of innocent victims… Every human life, especially those of our keiki, deserve to be raised with honorable cultural values and virtues of ‘ohana.”

Mahalo to Mayor Rick Blangiardi, and his gracious staff, for stepping forward to declare his commitment to the fight against trafficking. Mahalo to Lt. Gov Josh Green for his unwavering support and to all who attended the Mayor’s Proclamation, a demonstration of their commitment to prevent trafficking!

Mahalo to those who could not be there and sent their support and encouragement.

Mahalo to all the volunteers from across the islands who made signs, sent messages, and showed up to take a stand against trafficking. Together we will continue to raise awareness. Together we will bring and end to human trafficking in our islands!
