Talkstory session celebrates Women’s History Month

LIHUE — Two women who are making a positive impact on Kauai will be speaking at the Kauai War Memorial Convention Hall on March 6 at an event hosted by the The Committee on the Status of Women in honor of Women’s History Month.

All are invited to this free event that will feature speakers and honorees Renae Hamilton-Cambeilh and Gina Kaulukukui on March 6 from 6 to 8 p.m.

Hamilton-Cambeilh has been with the YWCA of Kauai for the past 21 years in various roles such as a crisis counselor, prevention educator, sexual assault treatment program director, and for the past 10 years, as the executive director, working to provide domestic violence and sex assault prevention resources, response, and treatment services for the island community.

Kaulukukui is the domestic violence interventions coordinator for the Kauai Police Department. She is a certified grief counselor, co-founder and executive director of Life’s Bridges Hawaii Inc., dedicated to providing immediate support to anyone following a sudden and traumatic death. Kaulukukui was also instrumental in the development of the Prevent Suicide Kauai Task Force and KLAS (Kauai Leaders Against Suicide) Youth Suicide Prevention Program.

Members of the Committee on the Status of Women selected Hamilton-Cambeilh and Kaulukukui for their public service, dedication, and leadership in the community.

These women are the essence of this year’s theme “Visionary Women: Champions of Peace and Non-Violence” and have influenced public policy, community organization, and worked tirelessly to make Kauai a better place to live.

The Committee on the Status of Women is part of the County of Kauai Office of Boards and Commissions, and the Hawaii State Commission on the Status of Women, which develops and promotes education, interactive opportunities on issues relating to women and girls, prevention of all forms of violence against women and girls, and encourages health and wellness awareness.
