“Our liberty will not be secured at the sword’s point… We must secure it by making ourselves worthy of it.” ~ Jose Rizal
Happy 119th Anniversary of the Proclamation of Philippine Independence! It was a wonderful celebration hosted by the Philippine Consulate in Los Angeles on June 9, 2017. Special thanks to Dyan Kristine M. Pastrana, Vice Consul for the invite. Prior to the event, we had an invigorating discussion on how to advance and promote gender and development for Filipino-Americans.
