A panel of speakers will explore "Tolerance, do we have a problem in Hawaii?" in a forum scheduled for Friday at the First Unitarian Church of Honolulu.
Speakers at forum
to discuss tolerance
The concept of Hawaii as a "cultural paradise," the distribution of wealth, legislating tolerance and the role of the religious community in tolerance/intolerance are among the subjects to be discussed in the 7 p.m. program sponsored by the Social Justice Counsel.
Participants at the forum will include Noel Kent of the University of Hawaii Ethnic Studies Department; Sandra Ma of the American Civil Liberties Union; and state Rep. Iris Ikeda Catalani.
Others scheduled to participate are Carolyn Golojuch, president of Parents and Friends of Gays and Lesbians; First Unitarian Church pastor the Rev. Mike Young; Office of Hawaiian Affairs trustee Mililani Trask; Maile Meyer, founder of Native Hawaiian Books and Beautiful Things; and Bob Rees of Honolulu Weekly.
Moderator Mary Anne Raywid will field questions from the audience.
Yoga master and spiritual leader Sri Swami Satchidananda will return to Hawaii later this month to present a lecture on Maui.
