2017 Policy, Politics & Puto Trainings


Starting this spring, L.E.A.D Filipino will begin offering monthly trainings and sessions for Filipin@s interested in learning how to run for office, serve on public commissions and committees, and nonprofit boards.  “Policy, Politics & Puto” will focus on equipping Filipin@s with the insight, knowledge and tools needed to catalyze and create change in their neighborhoods, through information-exchange on Philippine and American political happenings and news, and how to fuel their awareness into action.
