I’m Joe Kent, but you might know me as @OahuJoe on TikTok. I’m the executive vice president of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, a government watchdog and nonprofit that promotes prosperity in the islands. We’re working to make sure families can afford houses and stop the exodus of young people to the mainland. Keep up to date with what we’re doing by signing up below!

Let's remove the barriers to Hawaii's prosperity — together!

Did you know? The Grassroot Institute has its own TikTok account too!
