Hawaiʻi Peace & Justice has developed strong alliances with social justice organizations and coalitions internationally. We believe that none of us are free until we are all free. Therefore, international solidarity with those struggling for self determination, climate justice and an end to the gendered violence and ecological devastation of militarization is an absolute necessity.
