Filipino American History Month Starts Today!

Today’s October 1st!

Not only is it the start of a new month, but it’s also the start of Filipino-American History Month! And the Filipino-American National Historical Society Metro NY Chapter couldn’t be more excited at some of the events and social media campaigns that are occurring through the month!

FANHS National has set the official theme as

“1965-… Tipping Point for the Filipino American Community”

Share your or your family’s post 1965 immigration story, or your post 1965 experience with the hashtag  #FANM2015!

And be sure to join us for:
