EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2014
I am running the Bank of America Chicago Marathon 2014 to raise funds and awareness for the Alliance of Filipinos for Immigrant Rights and Empowerment (AFIRE). Our mission is to build the capacity of the Filipino American community to effect transformative social change through grassroots education, action, research, and services.
We believe in the People Power at the community level. When we join our voices and our hands to uphold justice, promote social change, and build our community, we are empowered to do more. We engage people to make democracy work for the greater good of the greater number.
We believe in serving the community. Nothing could be more fulfilling for AFIRE than creating and sustaining a community that truly takes care of one another and promotes the broadest common welfare for all.
