Event description

Description

We're out to canvass in Union City to make sure people in our community get counted in the Census 2020 and people know about Schools & Communities First! We will be doing a training for beginning and then going out in the community door to door! Come and meet other people in the community and learn about FAJ's programs too. There will be food provided but we need to know many people so we can make sure everyone gets fed!

Itinerary:

  • 12pm - Check-In
  • 12:15pm - Training to go out
  • 1pm - Canvas in the community
  • 3:30pm - Return to office & eat
  • 4pm - Projected project end


About Filipino Advocates for Justice:

Filipino Advocates for Justice, formerly Filipinos for Affirmative Action, was established in 1973 by students and community leaders in response to the discrimination and alienation faced by the influx of immigrant newcomers from the Philippines.

For more than 40 years Filipino Advocates for Justice has been an advocate for immigrant, worker and civil rights and has sought to help the most vulnerable in the community navigate the challenges and hurdles of life in the US, particularly at-risk middle and high school-age youth, low-wage workers vulnerable to exploitation, newly-arrived immigrants and the undocumented.

Today, FAJ serves the more than 130,000 Filipinos who call the East Bay Area home through its offices in Oakland’s Chinatown and Union City.


Power California:

Power California emerged from the union of Mobilize The Immigrant Vote and YVote, two of California’s most successful organizers of immigrants, refugees and youth of color.

Our vision for the future:

  • All who call California home – regardless of citizenship – participate fully in decision-making for a just, safe, and culturally-vibrant state
  • Power rests with the people, and those with the least economic, socio-cultural and political power have equal say in determining our state’s future
  • California welcomes and fully embraces all people and our stories in every aspect our state, regardless of migration status, race-ethnicity, systems impact, class, gender, sexuality, disability, or age
  • Our state centers young people, families and communities of color so California thrives together
