Mission Statement

About This Cause

We are the United Territories of Pacific Islanders Alliance, also known as UTOPIA!
UTOPIA Washington is a queer and trans people of color-led grassroots organization born out of the struggles, challenges, strength, and resilience of the Queer and Trans Pacific Islander (QTPI - "Q-T-pie") community in South King County.

Since 2009, UTOPIA Washington has worked with QTPI leaders to create safe, welcoming, supportive, and vibrant space for members of our community to address basic needs, build pathways toward new expanded career and life opportunities to, foster a sense of common purpose, and advocate for social justice, education, and overall wellness among members of the Pacific Islander LGBTQI community. We also seek to build trust and common ground as a convener and bridge-builder between the Pacific Islander community and the LGBTQI community, who often share many of the same issues and concerns.

UTOPIA Washington is led and founded by women of color, identifying as transgender and/or fa'afafine. Fa'afafine is a cultural gender identity native to Samoa. We approach community work through an intersectional and cultural lens. Our cultural identity plays an integral role in the way we care and fight for the liberation of queer and trans people of color.
