About this Event

Join Anakbayan & Gabriela Portland for a feast of Filipino food & cultural performances!

WHAT IS A KAMAYAN?

A "kamayan" is Filipino feast where participants eat with their hands. As two organizations fighting for the liberation of the Filipino people, we are coming together to celebrate Filipino culture and cuisine.

WHO IS ANAKBAYAN & GABRIELA?

Anakbayan Portland (AB PDX) is the Portland chapter of Anakbayan USA . As a grassroots organization of Filipino youth organizers, AB PDX conducts political education in their organization and with their community to ensure that Filipino youth have the tools to fight and defend our identity, rights, and motherland.

Gabriela Portland (GAB PDX) is a collective of Pinays celebrating our multifaceted identities, revolutionary herstory and rich culture. GAB PDX works to build a community in the greater Portland area invested in educating, serving and advocating for the human rights of Filipinas locally and globally.

Together as organizations that are part of the National Democratic movement, we are committed to working for genuine national liberation and democracy in the Philippines.

WHAT IS THIS FUNDRAISER DINNER FOR?

Funds raised at this dinner will help members Anakbayan Portland travel to LA for Anakbayan-USA's 3rd National Congress and members of Gabriela Portland to go on an exposure trip to the Philippines!

For AB USA Congress, Filipino youth from across the country are mobilizing to LA to learn about the current issues today, unite against the rising tide of fascism and US imperialism in the Philippines, and organize for a bright socialist future of our homeland. AB youth will also celebrate the anniversaries of Anakbayan, Kabataang Makabayan, and Andres Bonifacio, in order to honor the legacies of our kasamas (or "comrades") who have been martyred in the struggle. It is our duty as youth to forge the new world and build a new future.

In addition, GABRIELA Portland will be sending members on an exposure trip to the Philippines where we will integrate directly with the communities we serve to learn and deepen our understanding of the current conditions in the Philippines and the impact on the Filipino people, particularly women and their families. The stories and experiences we gather on expo inform and empower us to continue to fight for peace and sovereignty in the Philippines

For this fundraiser, pre-sale tickets are $25. At the door tickets are $30, but bring a plus one and your ticket will be reduced to $25 each!
