Intersectional Advocacy

Session 1

Lincoln Hall, LH 1024

10:00 AM - 11:10 AM

Intersectionality is the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage. Through this workshop, we will work to reflect on our experiences (with emphasis on Filipino American experiences), recognize how rights/privileges/power materialize in our identities, and make commitments on how you can move forward with your communities to advocate for others.

Pilipino American Unity for Progress (UniPro)

Pilipino American Unity for Progress (UniPro) is a national 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to organizing, building, and empowering the Pilipino American community through education, advocacy, and collaboration. Through our chapters in New York, San Diego, Chicago, Seattle, and Texas, we work across state lines, generations, demographics, issues, and topics to break down the barriers that stand between our community and progress.

Ultimately, UniPro asks Pilipino Americans to critically answer, “How do you define Progress?”
