The HawaiiKidsCAN Candidate Forum is brought to Hawaiʻi residents by HawaiiKidsCAN, a local nonpartisan, nonprofit organization focused on building an equitable education system for all keiki, while empowering students to speak up and get involved.
This forum is also presented by KFVE- TV, After-School All-Stars Hawaiʻi and Teach For America Hawaiʻi and is sponsored by the HEI Charitable Foundation. The forum is intended for educational purposes only for the public and is not to be construed as an endorsement of any candidate.
“Our kids have a major stake in Hawaiʻi’s future,” said David Sun-Miyashiro, Founding Executive Director of HawaiiKidsCAN. “After the last two years of disrupted learning and significant stressors brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic, we know this is a critical time for our youth to step up and speak out. We’re proud of the students leading this year’s candidate forum, and we hope to spark conversation for local kids and families. Mahalo to the students, candidates, KFVE- TV, HEI Charitable Foundation, After-School All-Stars Hawaiʻi and Teach For America Hawaiʻi.”
