An Invitation to Attend a Historic Event

Pacific Islanders to Convene for the First Annual Summit for Pacific Islander Resources & Education

South Seattle Community College
September 29, 2012

Seattle – All are invited to attend this historic event where Pacific Islander students, parents, educators, and community leaders will convene for a statewide education summit—a first in Washington State for the community—on September 29th at South Seattle Community College.

The Annual Summit for Pacific Islander Resources and Education (ASPIRE) will create a space for Pacific Islander students, parents, families, educators, and community members to come together to share and exchange perspectives, lived experiences, resources, and information on the issues facing their children in the education system. A goal of the summit is to create and build momentum behind an education reform agenda, inspired through community organizing, that supports Pacific Islander students.

ASPIRE is part of the Washington State Asian American and Pacific Islander Voices in Education Initiative (Voices Initiative), which launched last year to prepare Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) families, community leaders and organizations to be full partners in the academic success of AAPI students and to influence education policymaking in Washington State. Partners of the Voices Initiative include the Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs, the Asian Pacific Islander American Think Tank, and the Pacific Islander Education Think Tank.
