Ryan Anderson and Jim DeMint Promote Religious Liberty in Hawaii

More than 100 Hawaii conservatives joined Heritage Foundation President Jim DeMint in Honolulu May 8 for an event about the importance of limited government, religious liberty, and traditional marriage.

Heritage’s Ryan Anderson led a discussion with Jim Hochberg, president of Hawaii Family Advocates, about the liberty that’s at stake in the debate over marriage.

The conservative cause faces an uphill battle in the Aloha State. For example, just one state Senator is a Republican, making Hawaii’s the most lopsided legislative chamber in the country. (That senator,  Sam Slom, joined us for the event.)

This was the first public event in Hawaii featuring a Heritage president in more than a quarter century.

Heritage continues to focus on advancing conservative solutions across the entire country. All of what we do, including in the 50th state, is made possible by Heritage supporters and grassroots activists.
