2023 FilAm Policy Symposium

Join the Filipinx Igniting Engagement for Reimagining Collective Empowerment (FIERCE) Coalition for our Annual FilAm Policy Symposium on Saturday, March 4, 2023 via live broadcast and at watch parties across California.

Through creating safe spaces that elevate and amplify FilAm needs, stories, and experiences, FIERCE has shaped critical local and state policy to advance the wellbeing of Filipinas/xs/os across California. These efforts include our recent campaigns around Stop Asian Hate, Ethnic Studies and supporting educators, and increasing Police Accountability.
