1) Raise awareness about the issues and disparities that exist in the Pilipino/Pilipino American community;
2) Showcase the organizations, institutions, individuals, and other advocates for equality who are working actively to address these issues,
3) Demonstrate the tangible strategies these organizations are utilizing to promote systemic change, for the purpose of encouraging and empowering the community to get involved.
Part II of UniPro's SoPAAS is a production of Eve Ensler's The Vagina Monologues. Featuring an all-Pilipina cast, UniPro’s production of Eve Ensler’s "The Vagina Monologues" will be performed in solidarity with Women’s HERstory Month and the 1 Billion Rising Campaign to end violence against women all over the world.
