What We Do
Growing Youth
HPJ’s programs focused on Growing Youth plant seeds of peace and grow new youth leaders, organizers and activists for the peace and justice movement in Hawaiʻi. Building on the successes and lessons of our previous youth projects, we will conduct training and educational programs to develop the creativity, critical thinking and community leadership of youth and promote alternatives to military service.
Growing Solidarity
We strive to be a “kīpuka”, a center that provides support and connectivity for constituencies working for peace and justice, as we foster understanding and solidarity with and between different communities and movements. As in a healthy ecosystem, the diversity of our community is a source of our movement’s strength and vitality.
Growing Peace
We will create a more peaceful, just and sustainable Hawaiʻi and the world by working for demilitarization in Hawaiʻi and addressing the historical injustices caused by the military takeover of Hawaiʻi. We oppose military expansion and work for the transformation of militarized places into centers for peace, justice and environmental protection.
