Grantees Hawai'i Peace and Justice

Originally founded in 1968, the Hawai’i Area Program of the American Friends Service Committee has become Hawaiʻi Peace and Justice.  The work of HPJ draws on the long tradition of organizing and struggle in Hawai’i for workers’ rights, land and sovereignty, environmental protection and human dignity.  HPJ is working to grow an alternative future based on meeting human needs, protecting the environment and preserving culture, self-determination and human rights. We also support grassroots struggles that resist the destructive impacts of war and militarization and unjust social and economic policies.
