In case you missed it, we were lucky to be featured on Good Day Sacramento for our free women's self-defense workshop hosted by Team CAMA in partnership with Healing PUSO, The 209 API Coalition, & Little Manila Rising!

Stay tuned for future self-defense workshops coming soon!

“It’s not shameful to ask for help. It’s not shameful to say I’m not in the right headspace right now. It’s not shameful to stand up for what you believe in. It’s not a shame to be the loudest Filipino in the room” -Nikki Chan, Executive Director, Empowering Marginalized Asian Communities.

We're grateful to be a part of and to speak at the LEAD Filipino Policy Symposium on Saturday, March 4th. It was a blessing to have been in community with other great Filipino organizations and leaders - Pilipino American LA Democrats, National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA), Bulosan Center, Amado Khava Foundation, and Filipino Advocates for Justice!

You can catch the rest of the symposium on LEAD Filipino's Facebook or Linkedin pages.

What an absolute honor to convene and be in community with one another to #StopTheHate! Over 25 organizations from across the region gathered to share lessons and wisdom at the Stop The Hate Learning Circle hosted by The Center at The Sierra Health Foundation.

Discussions included:

  • Navigating hard conversations and naming racism and white supremacy as the root of hate towards marginalized communities.

  • What it takes to build a movement centered on healing and justice.

  • Confronting our own traumas for the liberation of our communities.

  • Paving the way for younger generations to lead movements for community healing.

We are in complete awe of the power and wisdom shared among these changemakers across the Central Valley. We are grateful for this opportunity to build on our collaborative efforts and learn from each other's collective wisdom and shared stories.
