‘Smart Justice’ coming soon

LIHUE — As part of its Smart Justice campaign, the American Civil Liberties Union of HawaiI will host a free talk story event at Ha Coffee Bar from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 22.

Open to the public, the evening will be an open conversation about the current landscape of civil rights and the criminal justice system in Hawaii. It is the first in a series of free talk stories that the ACLU of Hawaii is organizing across the state.

The discussion will touch on some of the ACLU’s recent work in the Legislature and the Campaign for Smart Justice initiative.

“More importantly, the event will seek the public’s input on civil rights concerns in their community and where they want to see change,” said a press release.
