Stories of Resilience

Join us to talk story about your hopes for our West Oʻahu keiki and families!

We know our state can do a better job of supporting West Oʻahu keiki and families. This community gathering is a space to share your stories of hope, strength, and resilience — and your dreams for a better future. Whether it’s through a living wage, paid family leave, accessible child care, affordable housing, or something else, we want to hear how your community can thrive.

This event will feature a discussion with Twinkle Borge, leader of Puʻuhonua o Waiʻanae, the oldest and largest houseless village on Oʻahu. Puʻuhonua O Waiʻanae is a visionary laboratory for how traditional community can provide true safety, healing and purpose in modern times. 

Leading up to the discussion will be a screening of the documentary Resilience. Toxic stress, caused by difficult experiences during childhood, can have lasting effects on brains and bodies. But a new movement is fighting back. Resilience tells the story of the cutting-edge science and field-tested therapies protecting children from toxic stress.
