The goal of this event is to provide a space to discuss the following questions:

3) TATLONG BAGSAK: Leader Training Workshop (please apply to join this part)

How can our Filipina/x/o community continue to spread this critical dialogue?

Opening Facilitators:
- Gregory A. Cendana
- Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales
- Arlene Daus-Magbual


The symposium aims to tackle these questions through two panels with leading thinkers and activists who will provide us with research, experiences, stories, and a language to use when discussing anti-Blackness. The last part of the symposium is devoted to providing an opportunity  to train and support to leaders, educators, and those who want to bring this dialogue back to their organizations, communities, and families. This will be in an interactive workshop format guided by activists and teachers in the Filipina/x/o community. There will be a community lesson plan, resources, and strategies that will be provided at the workshop. We hope that by spreading this dialogue, we can contribute to combating anti-Blackness in our community.

Our Event Goals:
1) To prepare Filipinas/xes/os to tackle anti-Black racism and anti-Blackness within their organizations and communities.

2) To build coalitions between organizations and across identities/communities.

3) To learn to live our values (eg. humanization and solidarity).

4) To feel prepared to host a dialogue with your organization/community.

5) To commit to transformative solidarity.
