Events for Pinoys across America

To say that we Filipinos have conquered the world is an understatement. The Filipino diaspora is as real as the Israelite's diaspora. There are more than 100 million Filipinos of us on Earth, some are living a king's life, some a pauper's life and most are serving the country they live in.

In the United States, we have Pinoys in the White House and other government agencies. we have Pinoys in Hollywood, in the healthcare and in the Education Department. There's no stopping the Brown race from moving forward and claiming the rightful spot in history. It's our time and the time is now.

For those of you based in the States, here are events that might interest you:
