We are an overseas chapter of GABRIELA PHILIPPINES, a womxn-identifying Filipinx activist group based in Jersey City. We help our fellow Filipinx in the local community as well as in the Philippines. We fight for the liberation of our people and collaborate with other communities & orgs fighting for freedom from oppression, capitalism, colonialism, and macho-fascism.
Join us if you are a womxn-identifying Filipinx interested in learning about immigrant, LGBTQ+, worker, and womxn's rights! If you would like to be an ally, ask us about how to support our actions & events or about other partner organizations we can point you to that would be a good fit. (:
Our campaigns include:
1) visiting and supporting Filipinx in detention centers
2) educating ourselves and others through historical/cultural studies and film screenings
3) mobilizing through protests at the PH Consulate in NY
4) supporting worker strikes against contractualization in the PH
5) lobbying to end US military aid to the Philippines
6) sending our kasamas back home on exposure trips to integrate with women, peasants, workers, farmers, etc.
