PFLAG (Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays) — Maui Chapter. Meet in the Fujitomo Hall at the Iao United Church of Christ.
Our Vision. We, the parents, families and friends of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, celebrate diversity and envision a society that embraces everyone, including those of diverse sexual orientations and gender identities. Only with respect, dignity and equality for all will we reach our full potential as human beings, individually and collectively. PFLAG welcomes the participation and support of all who share in, and hope to realize this vision.
Our Mission. PFLAG promotes the health and well-being of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons, their families and friends through: support, to cope with an adverse society; education, to enlighten an ill-informed public; and advocacy, to end discrimination and to secure equal civil rights. Parents, Families and Friends of Lesbians and Gays provides opportunity for dialogue about sexual orientation and gender identity, and acts to create a society that is healthy and respectful of human diversity.
Our Strategic Goals
One. Build the capacity of our organization at every level so that we may have all the resources, in the form of information, people and funding, necessary to move forward in our work with the greatest possible effect.
Two. Create a world in which our young people may grow up and be educated with freedom from fear of violence, bullying and other forms of discrimination, regardless of their real or perceived gender identity or sexual orientation or that of their families.
Three. Make our vision and our message accessible to the broadest range of ethnic and cultural communities, ending the isolation of families with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender family members within those communities.
Four. Work toward full inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons within their chosen communities of faith.
Five. Create a society in which all LGBT persons may openly and safely pursue the career path of their choice, and may be valued and encouraged to grow to their full potential in the workplace.
Six. Create a society in which all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender persons may enjoy, in every aspect of their lives, full civil and legal equality and may participate fully in all the rights, privileges and obligations of full citizenship in this country.
We welcome the participation and support of all who share in our Vision and Mission and who hope to realize our goals.
Aloha Fellow Hikers!
Please mark your calendars to join us for our next Monthly Hike on Saturday, July 11th.
We are planning to Hike in the Polipoli State Recreation Area in Kula – often called Maui’s Enchanted Forest.
Here are the details:
The Polipoli State Recreation Area:
Redwood, Plum and Haleakala Loop Trails
DATE: Saturday, July 11th
TIME: 8:30am Meet at Starbucks in Kahului (near Lowes)
We will carpool from there.
If you have an SUV or 4WD, please bring it along!
We will leave the parking lot by 8:45 am
If upcountry folks want to meet us along the way,
we will stop at Rice Park at 9:15 am on the way and meet you there.
Please email to let us know if you plan to meet us there.
If you are running late, please call or text 870.2564.
Trail Length: 4.9 +/- miles.
Difficulty: Moderate (3 of 5)
Terrain: Mountain forest
Elevation Gain: 900 ft
Park Name: Polipoli Spring State Recreation Area
Time: We should complete this hike around 1/1:15pm.
Route: Trail starts at Polipoli Springs State Recreation Area at 6,200` elevation, winds through stands of redwood and other conifers, past Tie Trail junction and down to the old ranger`s cabin at 5,300`. The trail passes alternatively through rough cinders, native scrub brush, grassy swales and a planted forest of pines, eucalyptus and other tree species. At the trail`s end is the old Civilian Conservation Corps camp and a three-way junction, the beginning point for both the Plum Trail and the Boundary Trail. Several plum and other fruit trees can be found in this old camp area.
Directions: From Kahului, we will take Highway 37 past Pukalani to the second junction of Highway 377. Turn left on 377 for about 0.3 mile, then right on Waipoli Road. This becomes Polipoli Access Road at the first cattle guard and climbs up the mountain through a long series of switchbacks until it enters the forest at 6,400` elevation, where the pavement ends.
