Native Hawaiians and Pacific Islanders: Systemic Racial Challenges

July 29, 2021
2:00 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. EDT
Location: Online Zoom Webinar

Indigenous Native Hawaiian and Pacific Island (NHPI) communities are faced with unique challenges. In the Pacific islands and other coastal communities, climate change threatens the land, food security, and delicate ecosystems. Systemic barriers to equity, justice, and opportunity have compromised NHPI families and communities, limiting opportunities and threatening their safety.

A panel of academics, community leaders, and activists engaged in a discussion about the challenges facing NHPI communities and what steps can be taken to overcome systemic barriers. Audrey Kitagawa, chair of the G20 Interfaith Forum Anti-Racism Initiative, served as moderator.

This event was hosted by the G20 Interfaith Forum Anti-Racism Initiative and Fscire. It was co-sponsored by the Berkley Center for Religion, Peace, and World Affairs at Georgetown University, World Faiths Development Dialogue, and the International Academy for Multicultural Cooperation (IAMC).
