GABRIELA Info Session

GABRIELA BC Info Session

Tuesday, October 23

6:30pm – 8:00pm

Bahay Migrante, 4794 Fraser St.

Facebook event page (RSVP)



GABRIELA BC invites all Filipino women to our upcoming info session on who we are, what we do, and how we can all build collective power as a community of women. We will share our history, actions, and upcoming political campaigns, as well as provide ways for women to connect with us and get involved.

We are an anti-imperialist Filipino women’s organization committed to continuing the ongoing struggle for liberation of all women and for national democracy in the Philippines. We extend our support and solidarity to other organizations and communities fighting against oppression and exploitation. Together, we envision a world where we exist, live, and thrive in dignity and peace.

We will be speaking on GABRIELA’s national history in the Philippines, why and how our members began a chapter in BC, our objectives as a women’s organization, and our basis of unity. We will also open up a discussion on our social, economic, and cultural positions as Filipino women in the diaspora in Canada; how we can reconnect with our roots back home in politically active ways; and how we can build a stronger local and global community that supports and empowers one another.

We will not tolerate any transphobia or other hateful and exclusive behaviour. The info session area in this venue is wheel chair accessible but the bathroom is not.

This workshop is taking place on unceded and stolen Coast Salish territories, specifically the səl̓ilwətaɁɬ (Tsleil-Waututh), xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), and Skwxwú7mesh Úxwumixw (Squamish) First Nations.
