About Us

GABRIELA New York (formerly known as Filipinas for Rights and Empowerment [FiRE]) is a mass-based women’s organization serving New York City and its surrounding areas. We connect the Filipino diaspora to the women’s struggle in the Philippines. We are women of Philippine descent, including those who are migrants, immigrants and US-born. We recognize Filipino women of mixed heritage and adoptees. GABRIELA New York is a LGBTQIGNC-(Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, Intersex and Gender Non-Comforming) friendly organization that is inclusive of transgender people of Philippine descent.

We are a proud member of GABRIELA-USA, the first overseas chapter of GABRIELA Philippines. To learn more, please go to http://www.gabusa.org/
