This is a very IMPORTANT message.

Let's stand shoulder to shoulder as a community in support of survivors of domestic violence. Raise a loud and clear voice that San Francisco is a safe place to reach out for and receive help.
We have about $2,860 to go.

Please help fund the 3rd billboard in Tagalog "Domestic Violence is NEVER a private matter" (mock-up below).

Your $10, $25, $50, $75 or $100 will go a long way to reassure all victims and witnesses of domestic violence that they can and should feel safe to report abuse.  We raised $900+ in 2 days so please contribute what you can.

We hope you can support this very important and urgent cause.
CLICK to contribute or go to www.loudsauce.com/campaigns/82.

Through a San Francisco-based startup called LoudSauce, FWN turned to the internet - to YOU - and to "crowdfunding" to raise money for the billboard.  SPREAD the word about this campaign - Facebook your friends, Twitter this message, forward this Email to your friends.

Take a stand and help your Filipina / Asian sisters and FWN install this billboard.

Can Training White Men Help Create Inclusive Workplaces?

One Step at a Time:
A Good Step for Language Access
Great News from Jenny Lam, Director of Community Initiatives (Chinese for Affirmative Action):

The 2012-13 City budget now includes $500,000 in recommended funding for advancing language access and cultural competency in City government.This funding should enable neighborhood organizations with the appropriate linguistic and cultural skills to partner with City agencies. We expect the Mayor to sign the overall budget with this item before the end of the month.

Check out other ways the CCA is contributing

Though funding alone will not solve this problem, it is a critical part of the equation.

Mother Hen's Flown the Coop: Going Places
FOR A Filipina who didn’t speak even one bit of Mandarin or any Chinese dialect, to move and work in China in the mid-1980s back when no one really spoke English could only have required massive amounts of spunk. Read more...


You've all heard it before: Food is something that really brings us together. Being Filipina American, I often crave for the homey Filipino dishes you can't buy in the nearest restaurant. Having been on the road a lot, I've had to start making these dishes on my own, often improvising with the ingredients available. I've come to make a list of these Filipino comfort foods and I'm pretty sure I'm not the first to do so. I stumbled upon an article on-line with an awesome recipe for turkey paksiw. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did....
