UTOPIA PDX OUR MISSIONUTOPIA Portland provides sacred spaces to strengthen the minds and bodies of Queer & Trans Pacific Islanders (QTPIs) through community organizing, political engagement, and cultural stewardship.

OUR COMMITMENTS
To document and address disparities in the areas of health, employment and education particular to QTPI communities.
To promote culturally informed education about QTPIs.
To organize with allied organizations and collectives that conduct and support anti-oppression visions that work for, with and from QTPI communities.
To provide support and guidance to our youth regarding sexual orientation, gender and/or non-binary identities.
To build awareness within the QTPI and greater community on issues regarding the prejudices and difficulties we face and participate in developing solutions.
