On October 26, 2014, Gabriela Seattle celebrated their 8th anniversary building community while educating, defending, and advocating for the human rights of Filipinas globally with past, present, and future Gabriela Seattle members. The evening was filled with food, dancing and music and also concluded our 2014 Direct Ask Campaign where they raised almost $10k matching the $10k they received from the Social Justice Fund which they will towards funding a part-time organizer.
It was also Gabriela Philippines’ 30th anniversary and National Philippine Women’s Day of Protest. Thirty years ago, over 10,000 Filipina women took to the streets to protest the oppression, repression, and corruption. Today, we are still fighting!
