Abante! GABRIELA USA 3rd National Congress
Women Defend the People’s Democratic Rights for our Dignity and Self Determination
GABRIELA USA chapters from all over the United States will convene for their 3rd National Congress to review our organizing work and unite on a general plan of action to defend Filipina women’s rights. Our theme speaks to the alliance’s refreshed attention to advancing Filipina migrant women’s rights, making visible their work and worth, and increasing our organization’s ability to foster genuine social change for the people of the Philippines
