Paaralan: Pilipino Revolutionary Kourse

When: Saturday, November 17 2018 @ 08:30 AM - - 04:45PM
Where: Alum Rock UMC
30 Kirk Avenue
San Jose, CA 95127
Description: Come and join our revolutionary course! We will be providing educational discussions on activism, the oppression of Pilipino women, and a brief revolutionary history of the Philippines. All of these subjects will help us develop a better understanding of what it means to be an activist, and it will expand our analysis and knowledge of all things Pilipino.

ABNY will teach basic activist skills like flyering and community building. Flyering provides activists with a chance to engage with the community and learn about their concerns, but also promote events and encourage community building. Additionally, learning how to build with a community is another important asset that is essential for all activists and organizers for not everyone will have the same ideas as us, so it is important for us to learn how to address these stark differences.

Another subject we will discuss is the Pilipino women's situation presented by GABRIELA Oakland. We will learn about Pilipino women's oppression through a class lens and specifically discuss the various forms of oppression women experience both in the Philippines and in the United States.

We will conclude this course with a brief history of the Pilipino identity and consciousness. The history of the Philippines is one of resistance, and we must learn from this history so that we can better change the future!

Doors open at 8:30! We will be in the Fireside room. Come by whenever you can, we hope to see you there!
