Community Power: Each of us has the Kuleana (responsibility) to speak up for our Aina (land) and Kai (ocean). Your voice matters more than you think. Because nothing will change until the decision-makers hear from us and get a clear mandate from the community. We need your stories, your support, and your testimony at County meetings. We must protect what we love and the ones we love. So we all need to share our best vision for Kihei and our local community. Join us and help us to Save Kihei now and for the future.
