About Us.

The Honolulu Alliance is a dynamic grassroots organization of 30 businesses and organizations and over 150 households from Kalihi, Palama, Chinatown, Downtown, Kaka'ako, Makiki, Tantalus, Pauoa, Nuuanu and Liliha.  We are organized to:

  • ensure the protection of the constitutional rights of community members to make decisions about their homes, their land, and their property free from undue and unreasonable restriction and intrusion by government or other authority.
  • uphold public participation in decisions regarding use of public lands.
  • strengthen and support the diversity and sustainability of local communities and neighborhoods.
Our purpose is to save our homes, preserve our lands, and protect our rights.  We oppose the
National Heritage Area (NHA) designation and the process by which it was introduced in
Congress (S. 359 and H. 1297), spearheaded by the proposed managing group - the Hawaii
Capital Cultural Coalition (HCCC). This initiative lacked grassroots involvement and was
undertaken and submitted without the knowledge, agreement and participation of residents and
businesses living and working in the proposed district. We do not believe an NHA designation is
necessary to celebrate the culture, heritage and mo’olelo of Honolulu, especially when the rights
of Honolulu residents and business owners are sacrificed in the process.

Volunteer to help us stop the Hawaii Capital National Heritage Area designation!
