News Release from DCCA, Mar 31, 2021

HONOLULU — The state Department of Commerce and Consumer Affairs (DCCA), Office of the Securities Commissioner (OSC) is hosting an interactive educational campaign throughout April to celebrate financial literacy month. “Project Financial Literacy: Investor Education for All!” features free financial and investor education-related activities, presentations and resources for consumers of all ages.

In 2006, state lawmakers passed legislation designating every April as Financial Literacy Month in Hawaii. The OSC traditionally hosts an annual Financial Literacy Fair in observance of this occasion, however, in adherence to guidelines discouraging large gatherings, this year information and activities will be offered virtually – online and on social media. Consumers are encouraged to follow @HISecurities on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram for the word of the day and daily posts with fraud prevention tips, financial literacy facts, consumer education information, and more.

In addition to daily posts, the OSC is coordinating a comprehensive “Keiki Financial Literacy Week,” “Investor Education Week for Working Adults,” and a “Kupuna Fraud Prevention Week” featuring activities, quizzes, videos and presentations.

“We look forward to sharing important information in a fun and fresh way,” said Securities Commissioner Ty Nohara.  “Going virtual provides us with a great opportunity to safely and responsibly reach more people in our community statewide.”
