Our Campaigns

Featured Campaign

Protect Free Parking At Ala Wai Boat Harbor

The Ala Wai Boat Harbor area is the last free parking in Waikīkī. However, recent actions by the Division of Boating and Ocean Recreation may threaten the last remaining 300 parking stalls. We need  your support in asking our state legislators to pass Senate Bill 1034 (SB1034). The bill requires the protection of the free 300 parking stalls that were negotiated between the state and the public in 2008 to ensure free beach access for all people of Hawai’i.
