Spoken Word as An Outlet for Activism:

Pablo Akira Beimler currently lives in Honokaʻa and chairs the North Hawaiʻi Action Network, which is a group of Hawaii Island community members committed to protecting human rights, civil liberties, equality, and the health of our home planet. He has increasingly used the art form of spoken word (a.k.a. slam poetry) as a means for dissecting the issues we face and inspiring activism in others. Also as a full-time wildfire community outreach coordinator, he has taken a great interest in supporting self-driven community efforts, especially those of marginalized communities, towards preventing wildfire risk and plans to pursue a graduate degree in relation to this field. Pablo is the son of a Japanese mother and a German-Ukranian-Jewish father who was born and raised in Mexico. Pablo strongly believes in the positive impacts a multi-cultural future can have on a society.
