We Carry Oceans
Organization mission statement:
WE CARRY OCEANS is a storytelling home for women, trans and non-binary people who are part of the Asian and Pacific Islander diaspora to share our experiences and shape conversations about our bodies, families and futures.
Often Asian / Pacific Islander voices are excluded from conversations of reproductive justice as a result of systemic and cultural oppression. A clear and accessible logo and brand will serve as a point of connection for Asian / Pacific Islander women, trans and non-binary people, and / or queer people looking for a space in which their voices resound and resonate to share their stories of access to reproductive justice (or not) and create community, as well.
These creative projects offer an identity to We Carry Oceans that we believe will shift the narrative of who experiences and do not experience reproductive justice in the Asian / Pacific Islander community. As shifts occur at the national landscape, a recognizable We Carry Oceans brand will help align with opportunities to support the broader reproductive justice movement.

How does your organization serve immigrants, refugees, LGBTQ+, and underrepresented communities and causes?
We envision We Carry Oceans as an online website space centered around showcasing solicited and submitted stories about experiences with reproductive justice (or lack thereof) of those who identify as women, trans and non-binary people, and / or queer who are part of the Asian and Pacific Islander diaspora. In addition to these main content, we will likely host additional information dedicated to:
History/About Us (background info and context for the project)
Tools and Resources (links to other organizations, actions, data and opportunities, educational information)
News (space for blogging and featuring relevant information)
Store (possibly - featuring We Carry Oceans swag to help fundraise)
