From the report:
"Empowering Pacific Islander Communities (EPIC) was founded in 2009 by a group 4 of young Native Hawaiian and Pacific 5 Islander (NHPI) professionals based in Southern California. EPIC’s mission is to promote social justice by fostering opportunities that empower the NHPI community through culturally relevant advocacy, research, and development. Since then, EPIC serves the community through its development of an NHPI Policy Platform, leadership empowerment programs, nonpartisan civic engagement campaigns and continued advocacy at the local and national level.
