FACE Hawaii — with members from both Oahu and Maui — had a wonderful two-day training this past weekend on community organizing offered by the People Improving Communities through Organizing (“PICO”) National Network. The training was focused on recognizing the roles of privilege and power, creating trust between the members our organization, the importance of sharing our stories and turning those stories into action. This training was put to work on Friday night when we joined UNITE HERE! Local 5 in a prayer vigil for Aston Waikiki hotel workers fighting for dignity on the job.
Friday night’s action included a peaceful protest in the lobby and on the front steps of the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel, where workers are saying they have been harassed and discriminated against for organizing to create a union, and are protesting labor practices and low wages.
