Nov 29 GAB NY Event – Rise to Resist Exploitation: Discussion on Labor Export Policy

In commemoration of International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, Gabriela NY invites you to join us for an educational discussion about the exploitation of Filipina/o migrants and the Labor Export Policy (LEP) in the Philippines. In light of the recent victory that halted NBC’s proposed sitcom “Mail Order Family”, where a widower purchases a mail order bride from the Philippines to raise his daughters (www.tinyurl.com/FilipinasNot4Sale), the exploitation of Filipino women including the economic violence of forced migration and human trafficking must continue to be exposed and resisted. This is the first of our build-up events for One Billion Rising Revolution 2017: Solidarity Against the Exploitation of Women. The LAKAS Zine project will also debut its premiere issue featuring the work of Filipina-identified writers and artists that highlights the true plight, conditions, and stories of Filipina migrant women, migration, and the Filipina/o diaspora. Childcare will be provided. RSVP on Facebook here
