From the Letter of Transmittal: "The Hawai'i Advisory Committee to the U.S. Commission on Civil Rights submits this report pursuant to its responsibility to identify, study, and report on civil rights issues in the state of Hawai'i. The contents of this report are primarily based on testimony the Committee received during virtual public meetings on November 18, 2020 and December 9, 2020, as well as on written statements. This report identifies and seeks to address the disparate impact suffered by the Pacific Islander community with respect to the COVID-19 [coronavirus disease 19] pandemic based on the significantly higher rate of infection experienced by this community when compared with others. The Committee offers the Commission its recommendations for effectively and efficiently addressing the immediate and long-term concerns and consequences inherent in this current very concerning reality."
