Carmen will share a one hour powerpoint presentation with Q & A to follow.

She is a paralegal, community organizer and mother/grandmother of five with 35 years in her community working towards putting together a community plan made by the community, for the needs of the community and seeks your support for a puuhonua in Waimanalo and on all the islands.

About the errors of man

But forgive
And cleanse
