The Asian Counseling and Referral Service’s OCEAN group helps teenagers connect with their Pacific Islander heritage. The nonprofit is one of 12 organizations making a difference with The Seattle Times Fund For The Needy.
October’s UPRISE Education Summit was the 3rd Annual and it was a smashing success! This video is a beautiful and a powerful testament of the organizing work that is happening with the Pacific Islander community in Washington State around prioritizing our youth’s education within the public education system. We are proud of the students of OUR FUTURE MATTERS who together make up one of the key organizing groups for this Summit since its beginning!
