2022 Hui Ho'iwai Reentry Summit
March 20 & 21, 2022
Going Home Hawai'i is proud to be a Hui Ho'iwai Group Member Organization!
Hui Hoʻiwai is an informal working group of advocacy and reentry organizations striving to shine the light on the power within our communities and fighting to end the dehumanization of incarcerated people. The organizations that comprise Hui Hoʻiwai push for a paradigm shift where the default is not to put people in cages for violations or offenses. This reentry summit is an opportunity to build connections and foster vital discussion of these issues, see presentations on evidence-based practices, and learn from speakers with direct and lived experience about what works to enhance successful reentry. Kānaka Maoli, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders and African Americans are disproportionately impacted by the criminal legal system in numerous and damaging ways. Hui Ho‘iwai is working to bring lasting reform to a severely broken system. The group believes in community investment and accountability that is therapeutic and restorative, not punitive.
