Senator Inouye Birthday Tribute

On Friday, 9/9, we are hosting a birthday tribute to U.S. Senator Daniel K. Inouye. This event will feature the premier showing of the locally-produced documentary “Senator Inouye: Told by his Son.” Joining us will be our honored guest, the late Senator’s son, Daniel K. Inouye Jr!

Chances are that your life has been touched by Senator Inouye’s work. Daniel Inouye was emblematic of the core values shared by all Hawaii Democrats and, as a key leader, he made our state and nation a much better place through his work.

Tim Vandeveer, Chair of the Democratic Party of Hawaii, has spoken of the traditional Democratic values of the historical Revolution of ’54 as a key to revitalizing our commitment to addressing today’s challenges for the next generations. Gloria Borland’s new film on Hawaii’s Senator presents an excellent way to do so, by honoring our past through sharing a story with our members and future leaders about those who came before.

Come join us for a special birthday tribute the late Senator Inouye. We will be screening the short documentary about the Senator and talking story with special guest Daniel Ken Inouye Jr. as we enjoy beef stew, cake, and refreshments.

Native Hawaiian Federal Service Fellowship

OHA and Kamehameha Schools Launch Native Hawaiian Federal Service Fellowship

OHA and Kamehameha Schools have partnered to launch the Native Hawaiian Federal Service Fellowship. Fellows will spend 9-months in Washington, DC, working within a U.S. Congressional office on federal policy affecting Native Hawaiians and others. In addition to the opportunity to make an immediate impact on national policy, fellows will gain practical insight into the inner workings of the Federal Government and influence over decisions that affect the Native Hawaiian community.

The program consists of three components: 1) immersion through work on Capitol Hill, 2) individual mentoring from senior aides, and 3) seminars on topics proposed by the fellowship cohort. The program will last up to nine months, beginning in September 2016 and ending in May 2017. Fellows will be compensated via a $30,000 stipend. The ideal candidate is a recent college graduate and/or graduate student available to work full time in DC for 9-months. Candidates should have a demonstrated commitment to the wellbeing of the Native Hawaiian community and show the capacity to work successfully in an office setting. The deadline to apply is 11:59 PM HST, July 1, 2016. More information, including details on how to submit an application, can be found at http://www.oha.org/DCinternships.
