Join Filipino Advocates for Justice (FAJ) for a special 44th anniversary event that marks a major leadership transition we are undertaking.

Isulong, the Tagalog word for “Forward,” evokes and celebrates the spirit of resistance and hope as our community engages in an unprecedented political climate of hate and exclusion.

This special anniversary will honor Lillian Galedo, FAJ’s Executive Director for 37+ years who is retiring. The reception-style event also welcomes FAJ’s new executive director, and celebrate FAJ’s work moving forward.

Performances by some of Lillian’s talented friends who have also helped shaped the Bay Area’s social justice movement are:
• Fatima Angeles & Ka ‘Ohi Nani o Mana’olana (‘a beautiful gathering of hope’)
• The Ben Luis Band featuring a cameo by Bill Tamayo, former FAJ Board President
• Joachim Luis, opera tenor
• American Center for Philippine Arts
• DJLN
• Mistress of Ceremonies – Christine Cordero, Center for Story-based Strategy
• Dominic Ainza, local award-winning chef and FAJ board member, will prepare reception-style offerings of delicious small bites and light fare.

Discounts and scholarships available for youth, workers, and other community members. Sponsorship opportunities available, please see: 2017 Sponsorship and ad levels. Contact Judith Olais at (510) 465-9876 or jolais@filipinos4justice.org for more information.
