Mahalo to the residents of the Leeward Coast of Oahu, from Nanakuli to Makua, for your dedication and hard work to confront the long-standing misuse of the land and sea of the Leeward Coast by landfills, industry, and the military's training & waste dumping. Together, we are officially forming the Working Group on Environmental Justice for the West Oahu communities. Our goal is to educate ourselves and our neighbors about the toxic contamination problems that plague the community and develop solutions to address the unfair and extreme effects on the health of Leeward residents.
The next Wai'anae Environmental Justice Working Group meeting will be this Friday, 9/18 at 5:30 pm. at the Leeward Community College Wai'anae Office. We will debrief the bus tour and get updates on the various issues we have been tracking. Please join us! Mahalo.
