Visit our website for information about Fracking (Enhanced Geothermal), Geothermal, making testimony at the Senate, House, and County,'s a great resource!

We sometimes ask for people to come out and support us with testimony, especially when important legislation is being passed. This can be done in person, in writing, by email or video.
If you have never given testimony but would like to, we can guide you in this process. It's an empowering thing to do and an action that is of immense value when it comes to passing legislation. When the 'we the people speak' en masse, the politicians listen! 

Visit the Puna Pono Alliance booth at Maku''u Market on Sundays, and pick up information and a T shirt. Talk to your neighbors, work colleagues, family and friends about the future you want for Puna. 

If you have an organization that you are a part of and would like to have PPA do a presentation please email with details. 

If you want to get involved, there are lots of ways to help. Come to the Tuesday Meeting at HAAS, 15-1397 Homestead Road, Pahoa, at 4.30pm and get involved.
If you have a skill that would be useful, have questions, or want information, please contact the secretary at or 808 339 4344.
