Our Mission

Our mission is to Support, Educate, Inspire, and Elevate our islander people living here in the United States.

Pacific Islanders are struggling in the United States. Despite being the fastest growing ethnic group in the country, we are sadly far behind the rest of the nation in education, health, and civic engagement. It is the goal of this website to combat these challenges.

We believe that by streamlining our passions, resources, efforts, and unifying our voices, we, the people of the Pacific Islands, can help each other prosper and thrive. We as a whole can create better access to opportunity for islander families and future generations to come.

"The Ocean does not divide Pacific Islander communities as much as it connects them."-Satawalan Master Navigator, Mau Piailug
