COVID-19 in Hawaiʻi 5|7|20

 

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAIʻI presses its coverage of COVID-19 in Hawaiʻi, this time seeking answers from key State lawmakers. At the start of the year, lawmakers had high hopes of addressing Hawaiʻi’s affordable housing crisis, increasing the minimum wage and creating tax breaks for the working class. Early education for pre-K students also was on the wish list. Then the new coronavirus took over. Now the focus is on how to recover from an economic meltdown while keeping Hawaiʻi’s people healthy. Join INSIGHTS’ statewide COVID-19 conversation with scheduled guests: State Senate Ways and Means Chair Donovan Dela Cruz, House Finance Chair Sylvia Luke and Hawaiʻi Island Representative Richard Onishi of the House Select Committee on COVID-19 Economic and Financial Preparedness. You can phone in or leave us a comment on Facebook or Twitter.

HIKI NŌ 4|30|20: HIKI NŌ at STN 2020: Life Goes On | Program

 

This special edition follows HIKI NŌ school groups that traveled to Washington D.C., in the second week of March to compete in the annual Student Television Network (STN) convention, only to find the convention cancelled the day before it was to commence due to restrictions on gatherings of over 1,000 people put into place by the city of Washington, D.C. These restrictions were put into place the day it was announced that the coronavirus outbreak had been deemed a pandemic. This documentary chronicles the students’ emotional progression from shock to severe disappointment to acceptance, resilience, and a resolve to tell their stories regardless of the fact that they were no longer doing so for a competition.

 

This is the first in a series of seven HIKI NŌ shows featuring student reflections on life in the COVID-19 era.
