RECENT CHAPTER ACTIVITIES:

  • January 2014 We stand with all immigrant communities fighting deportations as this issue is our issue and as our communities our deeply intertwined. We stand with Mr. Fuentes-Aguilar, a caregiver and economic provider to his child, an American citizen; a worker and soccer coach; a member of the Latino Union where he organizers for low wage immigrant worker rights alongside Filipina caregivers; an American without a criminal record or ties to his home country.

  • January 2013 – We kicked off the year with a splash, with a chapter meeting featuring special guest Myrla Baldonado! Ms. Baldonado educated chapter members about her current organizing efforts among Filipina domestic workers, as well as her decades long work to clean up U.S. bases in the Philippines. Many thanks to Ms. Baldonado for graciously sharing her time with us, and to Sarah Macaraeg for her help in facilitating this event!
