Friday, February 2 – AAJ Caucuses Joint Public Service Project:
Kick off Winter Convention by giving back! Please consider joining the LGBT Caucus, Minority Caucus,
and New Lawyers Division for their joint public service project, to be held on Friday, February 2 from
8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at Honua’ula, an organization dedicated to creating a place to honor the cultural
legacy of Native Hawaiians as well as contributing to the community.
Please note that the entirety of this project will take place outdoors, as we will be working on cleaning
off of a ceremonial site as well as clearing the overgrowth on an ancient lava flow trail leading to
several cultural sites, supervised by an archaeologist. This will require proper attire: closed toe
shoes, long pants, and probably a hat as it will be hot on the lava trail.
Transportation and lunch will be provided—as well as plenty of time to get ready for the receptions
hosted later that evening. For more information or to sign up, please email Jennifer Rafter at email@example.com.

February 6 from 1:00-3:00 p.m. TLC is working with Mālama Maui Nu, a nonprofit organization dedicated
to educating, inspiring, and empowering communities to maintain Maui’s environment, thereby supporting
its economy, quality of life, and unique Hawaiian culture.
Transportation will be provided to Po’olenalena Beach (less than two miles from the Grand Wailea). Mālama
Maui Nui will supply trash bags, gloves, trash pickers, and safety vests for volunteers and arrange
for collection at the end of the project. Please plan to dress appropriately and bring water/snacks
All members and guests are invited to be part of this effort.
