Hui Hoʻiwai Reentry Summit
Hoʻi to signify return, and the hoʻiwai is the part of the loʻi system where the diverted water returns to the river where it belongs.
Hui Hoʻiwai is an informal working group of advocacy and reentry organizations striving to empower our communities and fighting to end the dehumanization of incarcerated people. We push for a paradigm shift where the default is not to put people in cages for violations or offenses. We believe in community investment and accountability that is therapeutic and restorative, not punitive.
Hui Hoʻiwai cordially invites you to participate in our Justice Reform Summit taking place at Ala Moana Hotel in Honolulu on Sunday, March 20th (in person limited) and at Café Julia in Honolulu on Monday, March 21st. Virtual options are available.
Kānaka Maoli, Native Hawaiians, are disproportionately impacted by the criminal legal system in numerous and damaging ways. We need to come together to address these issues and strategize on ways we can bring transformative and lasting reform to a severely broken system.
Kūkākūkā and workshop topics will include: Justice reform, culturally-based interventions, Ho’okanaka process, reducing recidivism, reimagining reintegration, decarceration, impact on ‘ohana, healthcare options, building power, and trauma-informed recovery. Summit is for reentry service provider organizations, formerly incarcerated people, people with incarcerated loved ones,criminal legal reform organizations.
