Bangon Pilipinas PDX (pronounced Bah-ngon) collective – a workgroup of APANO Filipino/ Fil-Am leaders, has come together to support the needs of women affected by this super storm. Proceeds from the raffle will go to Coalition Against Trafficking in Women – Asia Pacific (CATWAP), an organization that fights anti-trafficking and abuse in all forms. CATWAP is currently focused on bringing relief goods, searching for the missing, and assessing violence against women, monitoring anti-trafficking red flags in affected areas, and serving the needs of all those who are vulnerable in light of the recent natural disaster.
The reception is dedicated to raising awareness for the continued relief and rebuilding efforts for those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. The event will feature poetry, sharing of stories by Filipinos from the regions affected and the music of renowned Filipino artist, Cynthia Alexander.
