Parents and families can create change! The ʻOhana Leadership Council (OLC) is a new group of parents across the islands, who want better policies for families in Hawaiʻi. Currently, the Council is working to pass paid family leave, affordable and quality childcare, and other family-centered priorities.

Duties include:

  • Bi-monthly meetings via Zoom or in-person
  • Advocacy training
  • Opportunities to meet with lawmakers and the media
  • Opportunities to share your story and give testimony
  • Leadership opportunities to engage other families
  • Raise community awareness
  • Collaborating for positive change
