On July 17th Poptimes Magazine, a network of Filipino American musicians in NY & NJ, will hold a show to help raise funds for the National Filipino American Youth conference.
Among other things, this conference aims to bring together youth (including but not limited to Filipino American youth) to sum-up and share experiences in the movement against U.S. led wars of aggression/intervention and highlight the Filipino American youth experiences and analysis of forced migration and systemic racism in the workplace, education system, media, immigration and justice system.
