What is Anakbayan ?
In English, Anakbayan translates to “children of the nation.” Anakbayan is a comprehensive National Democratic mass organization and we aim to build unity among Filipino youth of all backgrounds — young workers, students, peasants/farmers, professionals, women, migrants, Filipino-Americans, etc. — to stand for the basic rights and welfare of Filipinos at home and abroad.
Here in the U.S. and based in the belly of the beast, our chapter connects youth and student issues of our communities in New York City to the struggles of the people in the Philippines.
All youth and students are agents of social change, so all youth and students are welcome to join. Anakbayan New York is a chapter of Anakbayan-USA.
