In a first of its kind event, Kanu Hawaii is co-sponsoring what it calls a "pop-up dinner" conversation with nationally renowned speaker and activist Van Jones at the Capitol Rotunda on March 20.

It's part of a movement that Kanu is calling "Dream Revival Hawaii." You can also expect to hear some live poetry from Kealoha and music by Jive Nene and Kupa‘aina.

Dubbed one of the 100 most influential people in the world in 2009 by TIME magazine, Van Jones is recognized as a pioneer in human rights and the clean energy economy.

A Yale Law School graduate, Jones is president and co-founder of Rebuild The Dream, described as "a pioneering initiative to restore good jobs and economic opportunity." He is also the author of "The Green Collar Economy" and co-founder of three nonprofits: the Ella Baker Center for Human Rights, Color of Change and Green for All.

Kanu and the Faith Action for Community Equity (FACE) invite folks to bring tables, chairs, food and their ideas to the Capitol for a discussion with Van about creating a "sustainable, equitable economy." Van Jones is expected to present a platform for  bottom-up, people-powered economic solutions to promote sustainable agriculture, state banks and affordable education.

Dream Revivals are being held across the U.S. with the help of celebrities, musician, artists and progressive leaders as part of a movement calling for a more just and sustainable economy.

Legislative visits, art, culture and movement-building training take place from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. The pop-up dinner with Van Jones is from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.

If you've been feeling apathetic, this might just be the place to get your activist mojo back. The event is free. You can RSVP by clicking here.
