Oakland on October 17th
Also this month is is the reception for “We Are America: Resistance and Resilience” a timeline of Filipino American history.  Come and join us on Wednesday, October 17 from 6:30 to 8:30pm at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center for this event.

In 1994, activists in the SF Bay Area created a 100-year timeline about the civil rights of Filipinos and their efforts over the decades to assert these rights. That timeline will be on display at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center, October through December 2012, providing a visual account of Filipino resistance to discrimination and a chronology of the community’s struggle for equality.   In addition to the timeline a display of photos, artifacts, and news articles will be on exhibit for October Filipino American History Month.

Your tax deductible donations will help volunteers curate this exhibit. Click here to donate and identify your donation to the timeline by adding “timeline” to the Address 2 box under billing information.

You can also send checks directly and payable to Filipino Advocates for Justice with “We Are America” in the memo section. Mail to:  310 8th Street, Suite 308, Oakland, CA 94607.
