Lt. Governor Doug Chin

It was my honor to be part of a discussion on the current state of immigration in the United States. The event, held at the Harris United Methodist Church, was put on by the Hawaii J20+ organization, which is nonpartisan and not affiliated with any political party.

J20+ resists the onslaught of attacks on social, economic and environmental justice; immigrants/undocumented/refugees; disability/POC/indigenous/LGBTQLA/women rights; free speech; and independent press.

The moderator was Nandita Sharma, associate professor of Sociology at the University of Hawaii.

The other speakers included:
AMY AGBAYANI, co-chair of the Hawaii Friends of Civil Rights, was born in the Philippines and retired from UH Manoa in 2016. She was chair of the InterAgency Council for Immigrant Services, Hawaii Civil Rights Commission and Hawaii Judicial Selection Commission.

DOUG CHIN is the Lieutenant Governor of Hawaii and former Attorney General from 2015-2018. As Attorney General, he led other states in suing President Trump for banning travel from Muslim-majority nations into the United States based on discrimination.

CLARE HANUSZ is an attorney and the founder of Aloha Immigration.

JOHN KAWAMOTO was an analyst for the State Legislature before retiring. All of his grandparents were immigrants. He is a member on the Hawaii J20+ Immigration Committee, where he has taken a lead role in advocating for the Ho‘okipa Bill in the Hawaii State Congress.

JOSH WISCH is the Executive Director of the Hawaii ACLU.

NICOLE WOO is the Chair of Harris United Methodist Church's Sanctuary ministry team.

It was my pleasure to meet all those who recently attended the Hawaii Korean-U.S. Citizens League's Get Out & Vote Seminar.

The nonprofit organization helps enfranchise all immigrants in Hawaii and encourages them to fully participate in the political process.

They believe, by ensuring political participation by all those eligible, we can have a more robust democracy representing all citizens of Hawaii.

The Hawaii Korean-US Citizens League has held several functions over the years, including voter drives, free naturalization classes, forums and seminars educating and introducing candidates to the public.

I commended everyone at the event for wanting to vote. It’s our civic duty and a right that no American should ever take for granted.
