Uso is the Samoan term that is used to identify the relational connection of two people who consider their bond that of a brother or sister. The term is specifically used when addressing the bond of a brother to brother, or the bond of a sister to sister. It is never used to identify the bond of a brother to sister or sister to brother.
The statement "All My Usos" translates to: a call from a brother to all his brothers or a call from a sister to all her sisters.
All My Uso's (AMU) started in San Francisco, California, in 2015, becoming a non-profit organization in 2017. As a charitable trust, our mission is to celebrate diversity and empower underrepresented communities while promoting cultural identity.
We are committed to promoting non-violence among at-risk youths and adults as well as fostering stronger bonds within the families and the community. AMU actively backs other grassroots initiatives and programs with identical missions, visions, and values.
AMU aims to maintain the youths' emotional, behavioral and physical well-being by incorporating strategies that advance community and social justice for marginalized groups. We are backed up and represented by positive role models from all backgrounds and communities.
We at All My Usos boldly challenge conventional approaches and strategies by implementing unconventional techniques. Our goal is to reach the community and incorporate strong spiritual values within them.
