Advocacy in Action

March 11, 2010
Maui Weekly

South Maui Sustainability (SMS) is launching its “Advocacy in Action” series with Neil Abercrombie beginning Thursday, March 18, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. at the Kihei Charter School, located at 300 Ohukai Road in Kihei.

The series aims to teach and motivate attendees to use tactics that create rapid movement toward self-sufficiency and sustainability. The governor, legislature, business leaders, and many others are making changes and developing future plans to move Hawai‘i toward energy independence. By working together, we’re forming connections that have a direct impact on how rapidly we move toward self-sufficiency and sustainability.

Gubernatorial candidate and former U.S. Congressman Neil Abercrombie kicks off this special series that is designed to take advocacy to the next level—and fast. Our vital needs to produce our own energy, grow our own food, build a clean and green infrastructure, strengthen locally owned small businesses, keep local talent here, and reduce waste will fuel actions that will profoundly affect future generations.

Abercrombie will explain how you can redirect billions of dollars back into our own economy, preserve our precious resources and build lasting investments in our own people and communities.
