The University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa‘s Counseling and Student Development Center (CSDC) and Co-Curricular Activities, Programs & Services (CAPS) presents the debut of the "UH Breaking Bread Together to Make a Difference Speakers Series" with nationally renowned guest speakers Alexander and Jane Nakatani. The event will be held on Thursday, May 29, from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the UH Mānoa Campus Center Ballroom.

A local family from Maui that tours the country discussing issues of family, communication, diversity and tolerance, the Nakatani‘s are featured in the book "Honor Thy Children" by Molly Fumia and, in 1999, established a non-profit corporation in the same name to promote the acceptance of human diversity. The Nakatani‘s lost their three sons — Greg, Glen and Guy — to HIV/AIDS and violence within an eight-year span, and have turned their tragedy into lessons they share with others on how to appreciate life and those around us.

The "UH Breaking Bread Together to Make a Difference Speakers Series" was established to provide opportunities for self-improvement and to create an atmosphere of positivism at the UH Mānoa campus and throughout the larger island community.

For more information about the event and to register, contact Dr. Michi Fu at (808) 956-7927. There is a registration fee of $30 ($35 after May 26), which includes lunch.
