UTOPIA is a cornerstone advocate for Pacific Islanders in the LGBTQI Community. We advocate to address discrimination and other issues that impact our entire community, as well as providing individual advocacy in helping our members to access the services, benefits and justice for which they are entitled.

UTOPIA conducts community forums and listening sessions to provide a safe space in which community members can express themselves, identify concerns, and share new ideas for positive impact.  We are designing specific activities to bring together members of the Pacific Islander community who identify as LGBTQI and members who do not, in order to provide opportunities for dialogues on issues that are important to all of us.
