Because our community matters.
Running a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization is never easy, but we don’t think twice about the late nights, packed meeting agendas, and sprinting toward deadlines. We know it’s worth it because we are committed to achieving greater Filipino American representation in government, strengthening civic engagement and developing leaders within our community. And the best thing about that is…we are getting things done and we are being heard.
We need your support.
But we couldn’t have done it without you. When you provided financial support to print flyers, host our website or e-newsletter, produce collateral and rent event spaces for leadership training workshops or field organizing….you help achieve many things that have helped our community. You’ve helped us (just to name a few):
