121 Coalition Bay Area Blast!


We had a great time tonight at the Filipino Community Center! 40 students and community members showed up to hear six Bay Area Pinay Poets reading testimonies of surviving Filipina "Comfort Women." While Annabel Park and I talked about House Resolution 121 and the need for our communities to make their voices known on this vital issue.

Many thanks to the local team here, my Pinay sisters Allyson Titiangco-Cubales, Claudine del Rosario, Marianne Villanueva, Katrina of the Bay Area Gabriela Network -- and Laarni San Juan and so mny others.

Check out the schedule below and share it with all your friends.

Thanks,
Evelina
