On June 24th Hawaiʻi Bicycling League gathered with the community at Iolani Palace to celebrate the landmark settlement agreement between the parties in Navahine F. v. Hawai’i Department of Transportation lawsuit. You can read more about this historic case and settlement here.

HBL has long advocated for Complete Streets, Vision Zero, and increased sustainable transportation options in Hawaiʻi. Now, thanks to the courageous actions of the youth plaintiffs in this case, there is a legally-binding agreement for the State of Hawai‘i to rapidly accelerate the expansion of multi-modal transportation choices, including completing pedestrian, bicycle, and transit networks in coordination with the Counties. 

The voices of these youth plaintiffs were heard and met with direct action! Their bravery, perseverance, and hope secured a monumental climate victory for all people in Hawaiʻi and around the world.
