Come hear more about the Kūpuna Collective and the history of what this group did to make sure elders weren’t left behind during the pandemic, what they do now to convene a diversity of organizers across the aging network, and some ongoing collective efforts aimed at ensuring Hawai‘i is a place where our elders not just survive but flourish.
