Organizing & More

What will it take to organize across ethnic groups, specifically Pacific Islander and Asian communities? In this episode, we chop it up with the amazing Tavae Samuelu to strategize ways we might organize API folx across and beyond ethnic or national lines.

API Educator Pipeline

How do we attract API educators into the workforce and support them throughout their professional journey?; In this episode, we rap with Yan Yii on increasing the number of API educators that are coming through our teacher-pipelines and emerging as union leaders.


How do we uproot anti-blackness in API space?; In today's episode, we chat with Jason & Courtney, to dig into ways anti-blackness manifests in API spaces and begin to imagine ways to uproot anti-blackness across our communities.


What does it mean to be a wayfinder? In this episode, Gabriel & Estella chat with Sam Kapoi and Ka'ehukai Burley to navigate ways we might apply our ancestral knowledge to our daily lives.
