It’s true! FAA – Filipinos for Affirmative Action – after nearly 37 years has changed our name. After a two-year intensive process, with input from current and former members of the board and staff, funders, clients, long-time supporters and other key stakeholders, FAA will now be called:
Filipino Advocates for Justice
We wanted a name that better captured who we are and what we do. Rest assured that we remain true to our vision and mission. We are still committed to serving youth, newcomers and low-wage workers. We will continue to fight for social justice and advocate for policies that will address the challenges faced by the people we serve. And we will continue to develop leaders and bolster the civic engagement of the Filipino community in the East Bay.
Our continued success depends largely on your support and generous contributions to help us achieve our goals.
For almost 40 years, FAA has served the most vulnerable members of the Filipino community which we will continue to do as Filipino Advocates for Justice. We would not have survived previous recessions and deep cuts in government and private funding without you.

THANK YOU for all your generous support and Happy Holidays.
