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 mission is to provide resources and support to under-resourced and marginalized communities, with a specific focus to serve Pacific Islander families in San Francisco and the greater Bay Area. We do this through programming that strengthens relationships, while cultivating community leadership, and creating lasting change for families. Uso translates to brother or sister in the Samoan language, and represents our Pacific Islander values of compassion, collaboration, and deep respect for relationships.
We envision healthy and thriving communities where every individual finds the resources they need to overcome challenges and heal, where every family is a source of love and support, and where communities are interconnected and resilient.
