This spring, Ho‘ōla Nā Pua opens its doors to the Bromley Family Pearl Haven Campus, the first residential treatment campus for youth who have been sexually exploited. In honor of this momentous occasion and to raise community awareness of and engagement, they have partnered with local television station KHON2 to produce a special program: "Shine The Light: Help Ho‘ōla Nā Pua End Sex Trafficking."
The 30-minute special takes a deeper look into the issue of sex trafficking and child exploitation and showcases solutions, including services offered by Ho‘ōla Nā Pua throughout Hawai‘i and at their new Pearl Haven facility.
"We are hopeful this program will awaken the community to the issue and more so, the opportunity to respond and make a difference together with Ho‘ōla Nā Pua," said Jessica Munoz, the organization's president and founder.
"Shine the Light" premieres on Thursday, May 6, 2021 at 9:30 pm on KHON2. It will be rebroadcast on Saturday, May 8, at 6:30 pm on KHII. Both airings will be livestreamed on KHON2.com.
Starting Friday, May 7, the program will also be available on-demand, along with four other special features on Ho‘ōla Nā Pua that were broadcast in KHON's daily lifestyle program, Living808. You can view the videos at www.khon2.com/shine-the-light.
