Filipino Town Hall
On April 30, 2021, Legacy Board’s Political Affairs Coordinator Maireen Barnachea hosted AB Samahan’s first annual political event. In collaboration with the San Diego chapters of Malaya Movement and Anakbayan, we held a town hall for our community to gather and discuss the Filipino-American Agenda. Since it was so successful, AB Samahan will continue this tradition by hosting a political event each year. In Spring 2022, we are looking to expand to a two-day event. Day One will be an online webinar of various speakers, panelists, and community conversations about Philippine-American political history and current events. We are expecting Day Two to be an in-person mutual aid drive where our community can donate and exchange food, clothing, and other supplies!
