Monday program on affordable housing—come on over
Kokua Council is holding a lunchtime meeting on Monday, June 25 that may interest anyone concerned with housing or homelessness in Hawaii. For one thing, the speakers understand affordable housing, and as you know from reading Disappeared News, many of our leaders and our print media do not.
The announcement is below. There’s plenty of parking. Harris Church is very near the H-1 exits and close to downtown. Stop by. There’s even an optional pizza lunch. Or bring your own brown bag. Ask questions. Get answers.
PLEASE JOIN US FOR LUNCH
