The goal of this website is to inform and empower you as a citizen to fight for your right to free-flowing and clean water in the streams of your ahupua`a and to insist that corporations and government agencies follow Hawai’i’s laws to conserve and Hawai’i’s land, natural & cultural resources and historic sites.
