General Membership Meeting (GMM) occurs on the 3rd Tuesday of each month. The GMM is a great way to find out what is going on with Honolulu Chinese Jaycees (HCJ) in a given month.

Our GMMs provide individual, professional, or community development presentations as well as guest speakers from Honolulu community organizations and government officials at our meetings. Project chairpersons report out on current and upcoming projects.

The GMM also provides members with the opportunity to catch up with each other and meet newer members either at the meeting or a social event afterwards. Guests are more than welcome to attend to see what we’re all about!

About Us: HCJ is an organization comprised of young active citizens age 18-40 who are engaged and committed to creating an impact in their communities.

  • Raven Sevilleja
    Raven Sevilleja
    Deputy Prosecuting Attorney

    Raven Sevilleja is the 2022 Executive Vice President of the Filipino Jaycees of Honolulu. Her career as a Deputy Prosecuting Attorney in Honolulu began in 2017, where she currently is assigned to prosecute dozens of property-related and violent felonies as a part of the Career Criminal Unit of the Special Prosecution Division. Raven was born in Los Angeles, California after her parents immigrated to Hawai‘i from the Philippines. She returned here permanently in 2011, where she later earned her Bachelor of Arts in Political Science and her Juris Doctor from the University of Hawai‘i at Mānoa, being the first college graduate and attorney of her family. Outside of the law, Raven is incredibly passionate about mental health and wellness, not only in her role as an advocate, but also because of her journey as an individual with Bipolar 1 disorder—a disorder that remained untreated and undiagnosed until 2014, while she was a student at the William S. Richardson School of Law. Outside of her career in criminal justice, where she encountered the many obstacles of stigma around mental health and illnesses, she also dedicates her advocacy work as a Legal Volunteer with the Institute for Human Services, the largest non-profit dedicated to the houseless population, and as a Commissioner on the Honolulu County Committee on the Status of Women, where she was appointed by Mayor Rick Blangiardi and sits on the Mental Health Permitted Interaction Group. Raven remains committed and motivated in her career and personal life to the pursuit of justice and equity by elevating the most marginalized in our community, with inclusivity, resiliency—and above all, compassion.

  • State Representative Jackson Sayama
    State Representative Jackson Sayama
    State Representative

    While returning from college, Jackson was aware that most of his peers were staying abroad or on the mainland. Their outlook for job opportunities in Hawaiʻi felt bleak. The best and the brightest of his peers simply weren’t excited about returning home. They knew they could find better wages, more opportunities, and lower costs of living elsewhere.

    Jackson is running for the State House of Representatives to fight for a Hawaiʻi where hardworking families can thrive—supported by a government that reflects community values and the Aloha spirit. Where his generation and future generations can continue to call home.

    Jackson’s passion for public service inspired him to serve his community at every level—from interning in the Honolulu Mayor’s office and Senator Brian Schatz’s Washington, DC office to now serving on the St. Louis Heights Neighborhood Board.

    From the rising cost of living to the threat of climate change, our community faces complex issues that require new leaders to bridge generations, bring fresh ideas, and unite our community. Jackson is such a leader—and he’s ready to work hard today for a Hawaiʻi that his and future generations can continue to call home.
