We are Leadership, Education, Activism & Dialogue (L.E.A.D.) Filipino. Started in 2015 and based in San Jose, CA we are an organization focused on building the leadership of Pin@ys in public service, civic projects, and political participation. Led by Organizing and Advisory teams, we run leadership programs and initiatives such as Awareness in Action, Pin@y Policy Leaders, facilitate our Mentors’ Circle, and help administer the Santa Clara County-rooted IBOTO Pilipino Collaborative. To effectively uplift Pin@y leaders of tomorrow, we provide community-based programs which expose and educate young adults to embody “Leading Filipin@”. Our goal is simple — create lasting change that empowers Filipin@s to succeed as informed leaders in their communities today.
