What is NAFCON (National Alliance of Filipino Concerns)?

Background

Throughout the United States, Filipino organizations and individuals have been engaged in community-based and worker-based organizing and leadership development. These groups have been at the forefront—fighting for social, racial and economic justice by waging campaigns on behalf of their constituencies.

Campaigns have included advocating issues in the Philippines, as well as internationally, and doing relief and support work for Filipinos facing crisis’ while in the midst of chronically impoverished situations. A national alliance amongst these organizations and individuals finally formed in 2003.

Only through the struggle can the fighting forces be constantly
replenished by the ceaseless inflow of new blood.”
