In honor of Women’s Equality Day, the Ladies Artisan Market, LLC, will host a virtual talk story with Hawai‘i Island’s female state representatives.

The event will take place on Aug. 25 via Zoom with Sen. Laura Acasio of Hilo, Sen. Joy A. SanBuenaventura of Puna, Rep. Nicole E. Lowen of Kailua-Kona, and Rep. Jeanné Kapela of South Kona/Ka’ū.
