Kaya Press is an independent not-for-profit publisher of Asian and Pacific Islander diasporic literature. We are dedicated to the publication of new and innovative fiction, poetry, critical essays, art, and culture, and the recovery of important and overlooked work from the Pacific Rim and the API diaspora.
We aim to expand the range of outstanding API literature available to the public by publishing works of excellent literary merit, including works in translation. We are proud to present books that feature unique voices; new and alternative perspectives; accomplished experimental writing; and beautiful, thoughtful book design.
Led by Professor Manuel Pastor, the USC Program for Environmental and Regional Equity (PERE) was founded in 2007. PERE’s mission was to provide forward-looking, actionable research to support community-based organizations, funders, and other stakeholders working towards social, racial, economic and environmental justice.
In 2008, PERE incubated the Center for the Study of Immigrant Integration (CSII) to remake the narrative for understanding, and to shape the dialogue, on immigrant integration in America. CSII’s work focused on data, events, and publications on immigrant integration and immigration topics. CSII also developed a network of faculty affiliates across the university involved with immigration issues and scholarship. In 2017, CSII launched the Immigrant Integration Wire blog.
As of July 28th, 2020, PERE and CSII merged into one center now known as the USC Equity Research Institute.
