We are storytellers, poets, singers, musicians, spoken word and visual artists dedicated to social justice work.

We call for solidarity and unity among cultural workers in upholding our duty to defend human rights, democracy and fight for social justice.

We challenge cultural institutions and the arts community to stand with us in condemning injustices against our people.

We call on the arts community and fellow citizens to continue to stand against all form of government repression in the Philippines and here in the US.


Join us as we take action with our community members through this virtual open mic event.

This event will be live streamed on this page so please follow our page!
