Join FANHS-HTX on Saturday, October 24, 2020 for “Our Community Journey” at Alief Art House

Who brought you here? What makes you American? What makes you Filipino? What does community mean? How do we build a more supportive community?

In this year’s Filipino American History Month celebration we want to encourage all of our communities to reflect on decades of Filipino American resistance, activism, in the hopes to inspire and foster a united Filipino American community.

We won’t be able to answer these questions in one sitting, but showing up is the first step. Showing up for yourself, for the future generations, for the stories that drive us. In these series of events, we will highlight Larry Itlong’s story in the hopes to inspire and empower us to make a difference.

Our community is rich with extraordinary people like Itliong who fought for their communities’ right to live and thrive. But they were never alone. These same extraordinary people needed the help of day-to-day actions, simple solidarity. We want to continue engaging in sharing stories of communal resilience and resistance.

See below for a video and an article to educate and encourage. Larry’s story is one out of countless other stories that are often overlooked.

This event is brought to you by a partnership with the following organizations:

Don’t forget to RSVP here: link will be provided soon.
