Be A Jerk

Jerks in Action: Calendar April & May 2012

Jerks in Maui are not staying silent about easy alcohol accessibility in the community. A community-wide change needs to happen now, especially in light of what happened in Maui with a deadly car crash involving drunk driver who was supposed to be the responsible adult. Below are the community events that will help bring the Be a Jerk message to the adults in Maui in the months of April and May 2012. Please contact yuki@connecmaui.com for more information. Join us. Be a Jerk. Save lives.
