I saw this video this past month featuring a story about how Filipino Advocates for Justice changed the lives of Rachel Aceberos and her family. I’m posting this now because of the holidays and for personal reasons. My main intent in posting this is showing the great things Filipinos can accomplish when united and following their passion. Rachel states that, “FAJ has been a part of my and my family’s life since I joined their youth group in the 7th grade…10 years later, in 2009, FAJ honored me for being the community leader they helped me become.” For those who are not familiar with FAJ, their mission is to build a strong and empowered Filipino community by organizing constituents, developing leaders, providing services, and advocating for policies that promote social and economic justice and equity for all. There are many injustices that Filipinos face such as prejudice in the workplace, ageism, caregiver rights, etc. I hope many of you can take away something positive after seeing the Aceberos family’s story in making a difference in the community.
