We organized the first "Wake Up Westside" Emergency Preparedness Fair at Nānānkuli HS with close to 200 people in attendance from community members to federal, state, and city agencies. We partnered with advocacy groups to host two young women prom events addressing domestic violence and giving away over 300 prom dresses.
We collaborated with over 50 community members to move and renovate an unused portable from Nānākuli Elementary parking lot to use as an athletic study hall at Nānākuli High School. We collaborated with multiple businesses and community groups to clean Pa'akea Road four times and many other areas plagued by illegal dumping hauling over 10 tons of trash and more than 500 tires.
We connected businesses with resources through three separate entrepreneur conferences - one highlighting a business panel, another providing tax assistance, and a third hosting restaurants and food trucks. We partnered with Okimoto Corp, Keep It Flowing LLC, and community members to transform the Nānākuli Super from a vandalized wall into a beautiful 3,000 sq ft mural of the Waiʻanae coast.

We hosted 21 town halls throughout the district on topics requested from community members. We also started the FB group "Westside Traffic Alert" to help residents commute which has over 12,000 members and the FB group "Westside Townhall" for ongoing community discussion which has close to 2,000 members. Our accountability VLOGS are also very popular with the community as we report back to our constituents and keep them updated with things going on in the community.
