Filipino American History Month and
4th Annual Larry Itliong Day Celebration!

Please join me on Saturday, October 27 in celebration of Larry Itliong Day in California. Larry Itliong was one of the greatest labor organizers and leaders in California history. He was a hero not only to the Filipino American community, but for all Californians and Americans who fought and continue to fight for socioeconomic and racial justice in our state and nation. Itliong played a vital role in the California Farmworker Movement. His work has inspired many for generations.

In addition to food and refreshments, we will show a screening of the documentary, Delano Manongs, offer Filipino cultural performances, and host an expert panel discussion highlighting and commemorating the inspirational life and legacy of Larry Itliong. Community partners will also be in attendance to share resources and information.

Through legislation I authored, Larry Itliong Day is now officially recognized each October 25th. In addition, the story of the Filipino contributions to the farmworker movement will now be included in our school curriculum so future generations will know this important story of our history.

National Night Out is August 7. In our community, my staff and I will participate at the locations bolded below. Together, we can reduce crime and build stronger neighborhoods.

Sponsored by the National Association of Town Watch (NATW), National Night Out is a joint community/police program that provides information, educational materials and technical assistance to community groups to help develop an effective year-long partnership between the community and local law enforcement.  The goal is to reduce crime, violence and substance abuse at the community level.

On August 7, millions of Americans in towns and cities from coast to coast will meet together in their neighborhoods to personally get involved in the fight against crime. National Night Out helps create crime prevention awareness in the neighborhood through a multitude of events, such as block parties, cookouts, parades, contests, youth events and seminars.
