The administration in the Philippines is currently attempting to pass an "Anti-Terrorism Bill" that will severely impact free speech. It will broaden the definition of terrorism which will silence anyone that opposes the government. Click the button for more information and how to support. Sign the petition to show your support since many people in the Philippines are unable to sign due to the consequences of this bill. The Google Doc has more information curated by our Community Affairs Co-Directors.
Aya Morales, a fellow kasama that just graduated this past year, is currently in the hospital because of complications in her health. As of yesterday, it was announced that she is slowly recovering and being closely monitored by a team of doctors at UCLA.
Her family are asking to keep her in our prayers as doctors continue to conduct tests and help Aya recover as fast as possible.
Above is a link to a “GoFundMe [that] has been set up to collect monetary funds that will be used to support the family as well as the medical team that is taking care of Aya (ie. food, staff treats, etc.)” along with updates.
Many of our beloved faculty members and librarians were at risk of losing their jobs due to budget cuts. Now they are fighting against disproportionate salary cuts and for budget transparency from the administration. For more information read the SF Foghorn article and go to the USFFA website.
Please read the list of demands and sign the petition by clicking the button above.
