Hi friends! The Asian Pacific American Network of Oregon and the collective Bangon Pilipinas PDX are hosting a fundraiser tomorrow night at the Left Bank Building, to raise funds to support relief, rehabilitation and community rebuilding efforts for the victims of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. If you’re based here in Portland, Oregon please come out to support! The night will consist of poetry, stories, music from Filipina composer and singer, Cynthia Alexander, and then a brief overview to provide context of why we are providing support to the organization Coalition Against Trafficking in Women - Asia Pacific.
After the reception, head over to the Moda Center to watch the Portland Trailblazers take on Jeremy Lin and the Houston Rockets! Proceeds from ticket sales will also go to relief efforts in the Philippines.
Read more details below!
P.S. I’ll be there too! :)
At APANO, we believe that we are stronger together. APANO and Bangon Pilipinas PDX, a workgroup of APANO Filipino/Fil-AM leaders, would like to invite you to attend our reception and raffle as a community effort to provide relief for the Philippines.
Bangon Pilipinas PDX (pronounced Bah-ngon) collective – a workgroup of APANO Filipino/ Fil-Am leaders, has come together to support the needs of women affected by this super storm. Proceeds from the raffle will go to Coalition Against Trafficking in Women - Asia Pacific (CATWAP), an organization that fights anti-trafficking and abuse in all forms. CATWAP is currently focused on bringing relief goods, searching for the missing, and assessing violence against women, monitoring anti-trafficking red flags in affected areas, and serving the needs of all those who are vulnerable in light of the recent natural disaster.
The reception is dedicated to raising awareness for the continued relief and rebuilding efforts for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The event will feature poetry, sharing of stories by Filipinos from the regions affected and the music of renowned Filipino artist, Cynthia Alexander.
