COSHI Capitol Surge Campaign Kicks Off

Published in Blog Spread the Word on January 26, 2023 by Brett Kulbis

Day1: First in 3 Years

On Wednesday January 25th, the COSHI team kicked off their Capitol Surge campaign for the 2023 legislative session.  The team met at the State Capitol for the first of six Wednesdays to educate and persuade Hawaii Legislators and their staff to support our COS resolution.

A dedicated group of volunteers divided into 5 teams of 2, each to visit 5 State Senate and 15 House of Representatives offices, while State Director Mark White and Grassroots Coordinator Brett Kulbis coordinated meetings and logistical arrangements.  Designated by color, teams passed out the first week’s handouts consisting of district petition listings and the new surge document announcing nationwide support for Convention of States.

  Carefully labeled colored folders guided teams to designated offices to distribute COS materials.
