Founded in 2003 to build support for the Filipino community at a national level as a response to the scapegoating of immigrants at the aftermath of 9/11, the National Alliance for Filipino Concerns (NAFCON) has a proven track record of promoting the rights and welfare of Filipinos in the US. This includes:
- Successful campaigns for Filipino immigrants and workers on cases related to deportation and labor trafficking.
- Engagement of Filipino youth across the country through conferences and leadership trainings, tackling topics such as history, culture, and current issues affecting Filipinos in the US and the Philippines.
- Timely response to disasters in the Philippines through relief and rehabilitation and Adopt-a-Community projects.
- Regular medical missions serving marginalized communities in the Philippines
This December, NAFCON aims to continue the tradition of bringing people together nationally and create an action-oriented platform for individuals and groups to be engaged to respond to the concerns of Filipinos through the pillars of education, culture and heritage, health and wellness, and advocacy.
- Educate and empower attendees on issues affecting the Filipino community
- Celebrate Filipino culture and heritage
- Promote the rights, health, and well-being of Filipinos
- Advocate for marginalized communities
