We’ve been producing journalism in the public interest for 10 years, with the aim of making Hawaii a better place, and we have no plans to stop any time soon. But we need your help to keep this critical work going strong. For a limited time, donations to Civil Beat will be doubled, thanks to a matching gift from the NewsMatch program!
Civil Beat has raised $58,000 towards our $200,000 goal!
That’s the question deputy editor Eric Pape asked when we first rolled out “Connections,” a new Civil Beat feature that allows people to share their stories and opinions on issues in Hawaii. The first thread has focused on our high cost of living, an issue Eric has been researching. So we invited Keopulaulani Reelitz, one of the Connections’ first contributors, to talk about her story and her dream of owning her own home.
Civil Beat Editor Patti Epler is the host this week.
