Pasifika Aferika Solidarity is a movement to foster solidarity between the Pasifika Diaspora and the African Diaspora in identifying and addressing anti-blackness, creating spaces to learn anti-racism and anti-colonial organizing tools, learn together from each other’s history of organizing and resistance against white supremacy and continue to build strong bonds of humanity together.
The image depicts the sacred intimacy of our Pasifika & Aferika peoples and we will continue to build on this sense of family in rejecting our false divisions. It is the depiction of honihoni, sogi, hongi, which is a traditional greeting of most Pasifika peoples to share in one breath.Our shared breath connects all of us.
Our dialogues are grounded in the anti-racist principles adopted from the People’s Institute, and we focus on these principles to shape our discourse as we grow in accountability with one another. We invite you into this sacred space that centers truth and love.
Our work is intimately connected to your partnership. Thriving Pasifika communities lead to thriving communities for all Washingtonians. Our PICA-WA funding campaign for our 2021 programming will only enhance the visibility of our NHPI/Pasifika/Pacific Islander communities, foster leadership development and collaboration, and create cultural space for our people to belong. Help us raise these critical funds.
