11-05-16 / Pawis Monthly Meeting


November Pawis meeting was really fun!!

Tita Joan and her son brought Lechon, Ay naku!! pang high blood! haha.

It was for all the November birthdays like Tita Nelly, Bo, Felwina, Lina and Michael D. Tita Joan and her son.

We had a chance to asses our recent event which was the Labor Movement Workshop and Legal Clinic which was a collaboration with Anakbayan Silicon Valley.

We were able to serve over 30 people and we had a turn out over 75 people.

The assesment “ang Galing!!” with a few things that we needed to do better on example: Registration process.

Mas maganda next time! (pag may kilala kayong kailangan ng mga legal serbisyo tawag lang kayo sa amin!)

We also had a chance to check in and Tita Nelly our President asked, “How are you doing and share what you think about PAWIS?”

Everyone’s sentiment were their happy to be part of the organization and glad to know that there is such an organization that exist para makatulong sa lahat ng ating mga kababayan.

Our members also shared na maganda maging parte ng organisayong Pawis kasi para naring pamilya. Nakaka Touch!! šŸ™‚


We also had a mass orientation and talked about the history of Pawis and how it started.

Our alliances like

Nafcon – National Alliance of Filipino Concerns


Migrante Northern California

The different campaign we have and one is to end wage theft in Santa Clara County

Santa Clara County Wage Theft Coalition


We also had a chance to talk about Duterte and how everyone feels about his foreign policy.

It was a great discussion and everyone was very open.

We will continue to dsicuss yung mga issue para ma empower and ating membership.

To be continue… šŸ™‚


Our meeting is usually potluck.

Tataba ata ako.. ang dami lagi ng pagkain. laging busog ang tiyan, busog ang puso sa pag samasama and nabubusog din ang isip sa mga maraming natututunan sa mga karanasan ng ating mga kababayan.


Salamat till next time.
