Community Empowerment Summit

Presented by the National Federation of Filipino American Associations

Region 8, Northern California,

March 16, 2012,  4:00 pm to 6:30 pm

at Hana Zen Pier 39, San Francisco, California.

“How do we become stronger advocates in building community empowerment?” is this year’s theme. Organizers have this slogan:

“Together, we will discover the ways and means to become true advocates as a ONE COMMUNITY. This is our strength. This is what will propel our empowerment goals and objectives to success!”

Alice “Tita Alice” Bulos, the acknowledged legacy builder of community empowerment as well as the Godmother of Filipino political empowerment will lead a powerhouse panel of speakers and historic trailblazers, sharing the nuts and bolts of community empowerment. The Panel will be led by Vice Mayor Rob Bonta (Alameda, CA), Vice Mayor Chris Mateo (Lathrop, CA), and Dr. Jennifer Ong, Commissioner of the Alameda County Commission on the Status of Women. These panelists are also our highly-qualified political candidates for the State Assembly of California in their respective districts — a “Historic First!”

At this Empowerment Summit, NaFFAA Region 8, Northern California will give an overview of its community empowerment programs, including FilAmVote, and hold its Regional Elections. AT & T and Hana Zen are the Principal Corporate Community Partners.

Deadline for reservation is on March 12, 2012. Go to http://bit.ly/FilPower which contains the details for the “Historic First” events that evening at Hana Zen Pier 39. Updates will be available http://NaFFAAR8.com.

    ogie naman, kayo ngang mga “OPM” kuno na artists taon taon ay may mga live shows kayo sa US, Europe etc…nagbabayad po ba kayo din ng P1,000,000 sa ibang bansa?
    “OPM” ang tawag nyo sa sarili ninyo pero puro mga english songs ang kinakanta ninyo.
    nagbabayad din po ba kayo ng mga royalties sa mga composers pag kinakanta ninyo ang mga katha nila?
