This Working Group focuses on developing participatory, feminist, anti-racist, and Indigenous-centered strategies to address the interconnected crises related to COVID-19 in the Hawai‘i-Pacific Region. The aims of the group are to build participatory processes for bringing the concerns, needs, and knowledge of marginalized groups to the center within COVID-19 response and recovery policies while also supporting longer term organizing work on gender, racial and economic justice, and self-determination. The Working Group aims to connect research, policy, and community organizing.
