The Veterans Equity Center is a resource that is VITAL to our Filipino community. Not only does it assist the Filipino Veterans that fought in WWII side by side with the American soldiers, but is also a place that allows our generation to outreach and help fight with our veterans who STILL have not gotten the recognition they deserve after 60+ years of fighting with the US government.
Now SF is going through budget cuts and the VEC is going to be hit hard, with 1/3 of their funding being taken away.. That is $67,000 that will be taken away from all the services and resources that the VEC provides for our Manongs and Manangs.
* All the proceeds will go to the Veterans Equity Center.

San Francisco Filipino Women Rise Up Through Art
San Francisco, CA—As the weekend of International Worker’s Day, or Mayo Uno, approaches, the women of Babae-GABRIELA USA, League of Filipino Students, and Diwata Young Women’s Group prepare to not only celebrate the contributions of the working class worldwide, but to also celebrate the experiences and contributions of one of San Francisco’s distinct immigrant working populations, Filipino women. On Sunday, May 3, 2009, Babae, LFS, and Diwata hosts the 7th Annual Filipina Women’s Showcase, Diwang Pinay.
Diwang Pinay (Spirit of the Filipina) is an annual performance and silent art auction by Filipina/Filipina- American performers, writers, and artists. “With a 40,000 Filipino population in San Francisco, and more than half of whom are women, it is only appropriate to give light and praise to the different ways Pinays are living, resisting, and surviving today in the San Francisco Bay Area and beyond,” states Marisa Mariano, chairperson of Babae.
