Chapter Reports: Maui

The Maui League of Women Voters and the Society of Professional Journalists at Maui Community College volunteered to review the Freedom of Information Act with citizens. Volunteers from the two groups went around the Island talking with citizens about the provisions of the law and their ramifications.

The Maui League was also one of six groups sponsoring the sixth annual "Women's Rights Are Human Rights" Gender Justice Summit Conference, held March 6-8 at Maui Community College. The conference focused on the eradication of poverty, achieving universal primary education, promoting gender equity and empowering women, reducing child mortality, improving women’s health, and developing a global partnership for development.
