Aloha Peace & Justice Ohana,

You are invited to a Ohana Ho`opakele sponsored community meeting to listen to Dr. RaeDeen Keahiolalo-Karasuda on Saturday, December 21, 2013 at 9 a.m. at the Queen Liliuokalani Children’s Center in Hilo!  You will not be disappointed.  Her thesis is historic for Hawai`i and her passion for the pa`ahao comes through in her talk.  Something about her:
RaeDeen Keahiolalo-Karasuda is the Director of Native Hawaiian Partnerships at Chaminade University.  She received her PhD in political science from the University of Hawaiÿi at Mänoa in 2008.  Her dissertation, “The Colonial Carceral and Prison Politics in Hawai’i” analyzes the historical and contemporary ways that policy, representation, and narrative perpetuate and enable the criminalization and over-incarceration of Hawaiians.  Her professional background spans a range of disciplines, including strategic policy and planning, research and evaluation, and community education.  RaeDeen’s passion to contribute toward social justice drives her commitments in both her professional and community work.
You can also google “RaeDeen Keahiolalo-Karasuda and see her photo in the article, “New Director of Native Hawaiian Partnerships Appointed”, and hear an in-depth interview in the “Journey to Justice: A Conversations with Dr. RaeDeen Keahiolalo-Karasuda” by Dr. E. Kosasa.
