Indigenous Peoples' Day - Micky Huihui
Hawai‘i People's Fund is a publicly supported community fund established in 1972 to provide grants to progressive grassroots social change organizations working in Hawai‘i. They are a unique partnership of donors, activist grantmakers and grantees committed to positive social change and a more equitable distribution of wealth, resources and power. Hawai‘i People's Fund assists groups considered too small, too new, or too controversial by traditional funding agencies. Hawai‘i People's Fund brings together those who want to invest in justice with those who are actively pursuing justice in a united vision for social change. Their philosophy of community-based strategic philanthropy offers a unique alternative to traditional charitable giving. Individuals who contribute to Hawai‘i People's Fund are investing in their community's future by supporting projects that seek out the root causes of social problems and pose new solutions. Priya Prabhakar has the honor of speaking to Micky Huihui, the executive director of the Hawai’i People’s Fund about how HPF subverts the hegemonic white savior paradigm of Western NGOs, their work with over 800 community-based organizations committed to social change, settler-colonialism in Hawai’i, and more.

MOMS - Interview on Dazed Daydream
 Listen to MOM‘s In-Studio and interview recorded on December 11, 2018, on Dazed Daydream with DeeJayQ.  MOMS’s story began in 2015 when high school friends Hanjun Bae and Nick  Kim started recording songs in Bae’s bedroom in their hometown of Los  Angeles. The duo has since become a four-piece, adding The Venisons  members Steven Guillen as drummer and Julio Barajas as second guitarist.  MOMS’s androgynously whispered vocals, jazz-like guitars and drums, and  heavily warm bass playing draws influence from bands like the Pixies,  Portishead, and Sparklehorse. Born of immigrant parents, their Korean  background is a recurring theme in their music.
