About this Event

BACKGROUND

Founded in 2003 to build support for the Filipino community at a national level as a response to the scapegoating of immigrants at the aftermath of 9/11, the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) has a proven track record of promoting the rights and welfare of Filipinos in the US. This includes:

  • Successful campaigns for Filipino immigrants and workers on cases related to deportation and labor trafficking.
  • Engagement of Filipino youth across the country through conferences and leadership trainings, tackling topics such as history, culture, and current issues affecting Filipinos in the US and the Philippines.
  • Timely response to disasters in the Philippines through relief and rehabilitation and Adopt-a-Community projects.
  • Regular medical missions serving marginalized communities in the Philippines

This December, NAFCON aims to continue the tradition of bringing people together nationally and create an action-oriented platform for individuals and groups to be engaged to respond to the concerns of Filipinos through the pillars of education, culture and heritage, health and wellness, and advocacy.

OBJECTIVES

  1. Educate and empower attendees on issues affecting the Filipino community
  2. Celebrate Filipino culture and heritage
  3. Promote the rights, health, and well-being of Filipinos
  4. Advocate for marginalized communities
