MFAS 2017 comes to Milwaukee, hosted by Marquette University's Bayanihan Student Organization. This year’s MFAS theme is Rooted in Growth. The focus for the 2017 summit is to promote, educate, and celebrate the Filipinx American culture within the MAFA community. In order to achieve this goal, the weekend will focus around reaching deeper into the rich culture of the Philippines, encouraging dialogue about social justice issues, and emphasizing the role we play in modern society as Filipinx American individuals. We first want to dig deep into our Filipinx roots before we can reach new heights. Beyond the summit, we hope to spread awareness, new perspectives, and conversations through the lens of the Filipinx and Filipinx American culture.
