League is Action

WE PUT LAWS ON THE BOOKS

TURN RIGHTS INTO REALITIES

REGISTER MILLIONS TO VOTE

AND WE KEEP POLITICS A PROCESS FOR THE PEOPLE

The fight for good government is a never ending one. While the war goes on forever, battles and skirmishes are won continually; albeit, sometimes only to be refought again at some future date, but those victories are essential in our march toward our goals.

Let's step back and review some of the more recent accomplishments and efforts of our local League.

WE PRODUCED A VIDEOTAPE ABOUT NUCLEAR WASTE IN THE PACIFIC. WE PUBLISHED A VOTER'S GUIDE FOR THE SCHOOL BOARD ELECTION.

WE STUDIED THE FAMILY COURT SYSTEM AND LOBBIED FOR CHANGE. OUR EFFORTS PAID OFF.

WE JOINED THE SUNSHINE COALITION TO PROMOTE OPEN GOVERNMENT. WE FOUGHT FOR A GOOD CAMPAIGN SPENDING LAW AND WON.

IN COALITION WITH OTHER GROUPS, WE PLUGGED A LOOPHOLE IN THE STATE CAMPAIGN SPENDING LAW.

WE PROTECTED THE CITIZEN'S RIGHT TO KNOW. WE GOT THE CLEAN AIR HEARING BEFORE THE EPA.

WE TOOK THE STATE TO COURT AND PROTECTED THE ONE-PERSON ONE-VOTE RULE.

WE BROUGHT THE CANDIDATES FOR HONOLULU PROSECUTOR TOGETHER IN TWO TELEVISED DEBATES.

WE'RE FIGHTING TO KEEP DENSITY IN HONOLULU WITHIN REASONABLE LIMITS. WE SERVE AS A WATCHDOG OVER THE CITY COUNCIL.
