TAKE THE PLEDGE
TELL OUR POLITICIANS:
STAND WITH US,
NOT BIG MONEY
It’s time to end the stranglehold that luxury developers, out-of-state investors, Big Tourism, military contractors, and other big money interests have on our politics. That’s why we’re introducing The Our Hawaiʻi Pledge: it’s time to demand politicians reject big money from those who sell out our islands, and stand with those who live to protect it.
When a politician takes The Our Hawaiʻi Pledge, it’s a commitment from them to not be bought out, and to back common-sense policies that will free us from our rigged economy.
The Our Hawaiʻi Pledge, is the people’s way of knowing that a politician stands with the people of Hawai’i, not corporate special interests holding back progress in our islands.
When our representatives finally represent us, not big money, that’s when we’ll have a shot of preserving our way of life on these islands and building a better future for generations to come.
By asking candidates in public if they will reject corporate and lobbyist bribes and back common sense solutions to protect our way of life, we will find out who actually stands with the people...and who is just talk.
1. The Our Hawai’i Pledge is based off of the “Solutions for Our Hawaiʻi” platform backed by 13 community and statewide organizations. Learn more here.
2. The pledge commitment is forward-looking from the point of signing, and applies to any race that a candidate may run for the rest of their career.
3. If a candidate breaks the pledge by knowingly accepting money from corporate PACs or lobbyists after the point of signing, or by backtracking on one of the policy commitments, they will be removed from the website and the public and the media will be informed of their violation.
