Civil Cafe: Demanding Gender Equity

Campbell HS girls track members set up hurdle gear at the football field/track.

Female athletes in many Hawaii public schools aren’t getting the equality that federal law promises them under Title IX. A recent story by Honolulu Civil Beat exposed stark gender inequities when it comes to high school athletics programs and facilities. Please join us for a community conversation highlighting this particular example, which prompted the ACLU of Hawaii to issue a demand letter to the state DOE requesting that female athletes in public schools have access to the same facilities as male athletes. Together, we’ll discuss the outcome of recent discussions, any actionable steps and the broader implications for local education programs and athletics under the federal law known as Title IX. Panelists include Khara Jabola-Carolus, Executive Director of Hawaii State Commission on the Status of Women, Suevon Lee, Reporter at Civil Beat, Mackenzie Ozoa, high school junior, and Josh Wisch, Executive Director of ACLU of Hawaii.

This event is free and open to the public, but please RSVP in advance.
