The wildfires on our neighbor islands has been devastating for our State. The catastrophic fire that swept through Maui is a tragic event. Our thoughts are with those whose livelihoods have been impacted and displaced by the unpredictable force of nature. As an organization with members in different jurisdictions, we recognize the deep loss of life, ʻāina and home. HPA is committed to maintaining the spirit of aloha and strong sense of unity. 

Together, we can make a difference for our community in a time of need. Please join the HPA Board of Directors as we kōkua our friends at the Hawaii State Bar Association with their efforts to help our Maui community.

Mahalo to our heroic first responders and emergency personnel who work tirelessly to keep the public safe.
