INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Democratic Primary for U.S. House District 1

 

One of the most hotly contested races this election season is the Democratic Primary for U.S. House District 1, representing urban Honolulu to Mililani and ‘Ewa Beach. INSIGHTS welcomes attorney Ed Case, Lieutenant Governor Doug Chin, State Representatives Beth Fukumoto and Kaniela Ing, State Senator Donna Mercado Kim, and Honolulu City Council Chair Ernie Martin for a live and spirited discussion on community issues.

 

Note: Seven citizens are running in the Democratic Primary election for Hawai‘i’s First Congressional District, Urban Honolulu to Mililani and ‘Ewa Beach. Six of them appeared on Insights on PBS Hawai‘i on August 2. The seventh person is Palasi Puletasi. PBS Hawai‘i invited him to share his views on the issues in written form up to 750 words. He did not respond by the July 20 deadline.

INSIGHTS ON PBS HAWAI‘I
Speaking Truth to Power

 

The phrase “speak truth to power” is often used to describe an act of courage and non-violence, standing up for what one believes to be the truth, despite resistance from powerful forces. We often think of figures like Martin Luther King Jr., Anita Hill, or the man who stood in the path of tanks in Tiananmen Square.

 

Perhaps the people who have changed our own community by speaking truth to power are our greatest inspiration. On INSIGHTS, we’ll ask three of them about the meaning of truth and how it inspired them personally to face powerful opposition: Attorney General Doug Chin, who filed a lawsuit on behalf of the State of Hawai‘i that successfully challenged the second national travel ban; Randy Roth, a community activist and co-author of Broken Trust; and Loretta Sheehan, trial attorney and member of the Honolulu Police Commission. Colin Moore, UH political science professor and Director of the Public Policy Center, is also scheduled to join this discussion.

 

Your questions and comments are welcome via phone, email and via Twitter during the Live Broadcast.
