Help FAJ build power and resources for 2018
This holiday season, come home to rejuvenate, be in community with friends and family and refresh to prepare for the work ahead.
Next year marks a milestone, Filipino Advocates for Justice celebrates its 45th anniversary. On reflection, FAJ was originally founded by young folks and community leaders to defend and protect their community from the discrimination and racism they faced in 1973. 45 years later, we're facing another era of regressive policies aimed at harming immigrants, people of color, the environment, the poor and other marginalized communities.
In response the current administration's harmful politics, last year saw a growing movement set in motion. The hostile political climate has brought out young people and emerging leaders to come back to FAJ to defend and protect the most vulnerable among us.
We've reconnected with many FAJ alumni, many are former youth we have worked with who are no longer young people, but successful and thriving in their own lives today. As a testament to the bayanihan FAJ has built, the theme of home comes up again and again in these conversations. An FAJ alum, Rachel says, "FAJ is what I think about when I think of home."
It's been a year of hard work, organizing and building our capacity to stand up, fight back and move forward to build a community we all deserve. Today, we say We're Home!
Please donate today and help build our direct organizing resources. We have much work to do and a lot to look forward to in 2018.
Happy Holidays and thank you for all your support!
In solidarity and salamat, po,
Geraldine Alcid, Executive Director
