FACES is launching a campaign that connects Filipino Americans and allies to Philippine communities at the frontlines of climate change and at the forefront of climate solutions. We are excited to be partnering with two organizations: Filipino Advocates for Justice (FAJ), and the Philippine Movement for Climate Justice (PMCJ). Through our partnership with PMCJ and FAJ, FACES is on a path to explore climate solutions from the Philippines to the US and back.
To meet our partners, learn more about our campaign and how you can get involved, please join us on Wed, December 3rd! Dinner will be provided. Please email Leo at firstname.lastname@example.org if you need a ride from the Union City BART Station.

PMCJ is a broad coalition of organizations in the Philippines working to raise awareness and build the climate justice grassroots movement. In the weeks following Yolanda, PMCJ was one of the key groups helping with relief efforts and working with communities to demand accountability from the government and to demand a people-centered rehabilitation.
FAJ strengthens the Filipino American community in Northern California by implementing civic engagement, leadership development, and youth organizing to advance social and economic justice. FACES is partnering with FAJ’s Union City office to create a community garden as a climate resiliency project and educational space.
