Hello! We, Anakbayan Silicon Valley (or AB, for short) are a comprehensive national democratic youth and student organization.
What do we fight for? We seek to unite all youth in the struggle for genuine social change and liberation of the Philippines. By educating, organizing, and mobilizing the youth in Silicon Valley, ABSV fights for the rights of Filipinos in America and advances the Philippine struggle for national democracy.
Anakbayan believes that the youth are powerful agents of social change and thus aims to build unity among Filipino youth of all backgrounds — immigrant, US-born/raised, student, working, LGBT, women, artists, etc — to create systemic change.
If you are between the ages of 13-35, you can join Anakbayan and participate in:
– workshops and educational discussions
– cultural performances and conscious art
– exposure trips to the Philippines
– alliance-building with local and international community organizations
– actions and campaigns for basic human rights
– becoming part of an exciting, growing youth movement!
Anakbayan Chicago, Silicon Valley, East Bay, League of Filipino Students, Los Angeles, New York, New Jersey, San Diego, and Seattle are chapters of Anakbayan USA and Anakbayan-Philippines and member organizations of BAYAN USA.
Anakbayan Silicon Valley is also a member organization of the International League of Peoples’ Struggle (ILPS), National Alliance of Filipino Concerns (NAFCON), and International Migrants Alliance (IMA).
