Respecting Hawai‘i's host culture.

In Washington, you can count on Doug to:

  • Support Native Hawaiian efforts to determine their future and the relationship they choose with the federal government.
  • Fight for the Native Hawaiian Education Act and work with the Hawai‘i delegation to invest in empowering Native Hawaiian students to reach higher and achieve more.
  • Protect the Native Hawaiian Health Care Act and federal funding for expanding access to quality, affordable healthcare for Native Hawaiians, and reduce the disproportionate rates of chronic illness and death in the Native Hawaiian community.
  • Support an increase in funding for programs aimed at giving Native Hawaiians a leg up when it comes to buying a home in Hawai‘i. 
  • Work to level the playing field for Native Hawaiian small businesses to give them a fair chance to succeed.
