Dozens of residents of Kukui Plaza waved signs at the intersection of Nuuanu Avenue and Kukui street. They want people to know about the crime that's plaguing the neighborhood they love. Residents say the problem is only getting worse.
They point to a case back in July when a 24-year-old man was shot and killed, allegedly by a pimp.
"Were hoping to get rid of the prostitution, to get rid of the drugs, to get rid of the violence that's come into our neighborhoods" said Kukui Plaza resident Dolores Mollring.
"It's been really great for trying to get the voice out there that enough is enough. We're taking back our streets" said Alden Kamauna.
