AAPI Heritage Month: FANHS-HTX 2024 FANHS Conference Auction
For AAPI Heritage Month, we would like to remind everyone what our FANHS-HTX chapter does for the community.
The Greater Houston chapter of the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS-HTX) promotes understanding, education, enlightenment, appreciation, and enrichment through the identification, gathering, preservation, and dissemination of the history and culture of Filipino Americans in the Greater Houston area. Since 2015, the chapter has written the Filipinos in Houston book, the Texas chapter for The SAGE Encyclopedia of Filipina/x/o American Studies, recognized WWII Filipino Veterans by instrumentally engaging with politicians to pass a bill in Congress, hosted book clubs, and lectures, collaborated with artists, and working with the Houston community to collect stories and artifacts used for research for the Houston Asian American Archives (HAAA) at Rice University.
Full details of our organization’s work can be viewed on this website, going back to being founded in 2015. We are the 32nd chapter of 40 of a 40-year-old national organization.
We are all volunteers and humbly ask for your support for our 2024 FANHS National Conference fundraiser.
