Part 3: Juergen Canda - Ka Lama Ku Student Leadership Conference Keynote - Being a Leader in our Communities

Presentation Description:
Juergen Canda is a former Police Officer for the County of Hawaiʻi having served for 26 years. He was promoted to Lieutenant in 2013 prior to his retirement. Having spent his life as a public servant, he utilized his previous experience on the force to advocate for his community during the ongoing standoff on Mauna Kea, filing a complaint against the county citing "enhanced traffic enforcement" on the mountain was uncharacteristic of police operations. Since, Canada has been an outspoken leader for those opposed to the construction of the Thirty Meter Telescope. Canda will be discussing his experiences and what has lead him to a life of service with in his community, Q&A to follow.

Now more than ever it is important that we understand the concept of community based responsibility and how we can work collectively for the betterment of our communities.
