During the summer of 1951, Kanahele's focus turned to the death penalty with the looming hanging of John Palakiko and James Majors for the Morgan's Corner murder. She compared the case with the Massie Trial and thought of how there were separate systems of justice for native Hawaiians and the upper crust haoles. She sought the assistance of attorney Harriet Bouslog and made an appeal on the radio on behalf of the men days before their scheduled execution.


Kanahele joined the United Public Workers in 1949. She became the Territorial secretary-treasurer of UPW in 1952. She signed up the second most members for the union in a Territory-wide organizing drive in 1955.

She visited him at the union's headquarters at Pier 11 and encountered a group of two hundred haole women who were against the strike. She joined the counterpicket line of union women. In the following days, she joined the Women's Auxiliary's pickets. She cooked food in the strike kitchens and delivered it to the homes of strikers. By 1951 she was elected president of the Women's Auxiliary.
