157: "Education is only good if you feel liberated because of it." Filipino American History Month Special with Jen, Nani, and Stacey - Part 2 of 2

Happy Filipino American History Month (FAHM)! Jen, Nani, and Stacey return for part 2 of their FAHM special to discuss the importance of mindfulness and meditation when discussing heavy topics related to Filipino American history. Stacey shares the story of Clemencia López, an early Filipina feminist leader, and how bringing these historical figures to light can help process complex emotions. The group continues to discuss ongoing issues in Philippine politics, which includes a message from their podcast editor, Dennis. In closing, Stacey leads the group in a guided mindfulness exercise.

UPCOMING EVENT - Rooted & Rising: Migrating to America

This is Part 1 of 3 for the Rooted and Rising Talk Series - a collaboration between The Filipino American Woman Project and Filipino Americans at Kaiser Permanente on FRIDAY, DECEMBER 1ST, 2023

This workshop explores the challenges and opportunities of migrating from one's home country to a new one. Drawing from personal narratives and interviews from the TFAW Project, Jen and Nani provide insights on how to build a community in a new environment and how to assimilate without losing one's cultural values. They will also delve into the reasons why people immigrate, the impact of assimilation on cultural identity, and the importance of being a proud Filipino. The workshop offers practical advice on how to expose oneself or the next generation to Filipino culture, influence Filipino culture, and encourage Filipino pride.
