Debate on Akaka Bill This Friday-Don’t Miss This Important Event of the Year Featuring Nationally known Pollster John Zogby

article top

The November 2009 Zogby Poll of Hawaii registered voters revealed that most were opposed to the Akaka bill. The poll also indicated an astonishing number of people were not familiar with the Akaka bill and its potential impacts on them personally and on the state.

Accordingly, Grassroot Institute of Hawaii is providing a unique opportunity to get 100 or more of our residents fully briefed on the essential Akaka bill pros and cons — as well as to hear a detailed discussion of the poll results by Mr. John Zogby, President of Zogby International. There will be an opportunity to purchase John Zogby’s latest book and have it autographed.


In addition to Mr. Zogby, pro-Akaka Bill, anti-Akaka Bill and Sovereignty advocates have been invited to present a panel discussion on the poll, merits, concerns and impacts of the bill. There will be extensive time for questions.

There is no more important issue in Hawaii than the Akaka Bill. There will be no other presentation as factual, informative and even handed. You owe it to yourself and to Hawaii to attend this important event. RSVP today, seating will be limited.
