California and Washington State to host conferences on Pacific Islander-focused education and research

Spread the Word! Between now and the end of the month, Pacific Islander scholars, leaders, and allies will meet in California and Washington State to attend two separate conferences with very similar goals: to raise awareness about America's growing Native Hawaiian and other Pacific Islander community, and provide a venue to share information and ideas.

From September 24 to the 25, Los Angeles, California will host "Envision the Future 2012: Translating Research into Healthy Native Hawaiian Pacific Islander Communities." For more information, visit their website here: LINK

The following weekend on September 29, South Seattle Community College will host ASPIRE 2012 (the Annual Summit for Pacific Islander Resources and Education).  The organizers of ASPIRE 2012 write that this is the first gathering of its kind in the State of Washington.
