“Kailangan nating ipalaganap and ganitong webinar para sa mga manggagawa at migrante. Importante na malaman natin ang ating mga karapatan at ano ang dapat gagawin sa panahon ngayon ng COVID-19” (We need to propogate this kind of webinar for the workers and immigrants. It is important for us to know your rights and the steps to take in this time of COVID-19) — Tess Brillante, PAWIS Vice Chair
