Investing in the People of Hawaii

Investing in the long-term potential, productivity, and quality of life of the people of Hawaii is the best investment we can make.

It will make our economy stronger, our communities safer, and our society more just and fair.

That means taking meaningful action and advancing policies that strengthen and support working families, like ensuring access to quality healthcare for everyone in Hawaii, supporting paid family and medical leave and paid sick leave, and making child care affordable and accessible to working families.

Investing in the people of Hawaii also means providing job training and adult education by investing in our community college system, and addressing healthcare disparities across our state including access to care, life expectancy, maternal mortality, and chronic disease.
