Power in itself is not harmful – we believe that in centering community power through our anti-racist organizing, we can use power to build a more compassionate, humane world. Our PICA-WA networks are dedicated to combating institutional and structural racism through strengthening our commitment to building antiracist communities grounded in antiracist principles who will drive the change we need. Our antiracist organizing work is grounded in our history, integrated in our cultural fabric and aligns with our Pasifika Indigenous reference that champions the sacredness of relationships, space and intergenerational connections. We organize with our families, across class status, and beyond the colonial structures that have kept our Oceanian families apart. We are aligned and have adopted the People’s Institute of Survival and Beyond principles below to guide our work, and the ways that we move accountably within and outside of our Pasifika networks.

Our offices are closed from May 8th - May 12th in an effort to promote and maintain staff wellness.

We will be back to normal operation hours on Monday, May 15th. Thank you for understanding!
