Pasifika Speaker Series

As of March 16, 2020:

We are sad to share we will be postponing our event due to the on-going news concerning the #COVID19 pandemic. All monies paid will be refunded. It is for the safety of our community that we make this decision to postpone our event. Stay tuned as we plan a safe date to hold our 1st Speaker Series but for now please stay safe, healthy and vigilant!

We are excited to announce the Pasifika Speaker Series created to highlight Pasifika community members who are of Pasifika ancestry and/ or non-Pasifika members who empower and/ or serve our Pasifika communities.

This simple event is to bring together our youth in order to inspire our future generation and millennials that will lead our future. Come out, break bread with your fellow community members and learn.

We are incredibly honored to have two amazing, powerhouse speakers for our premiere Pasifika Speaker Series event.
