Ugnayan Lakas Kabataan 2017

Ugnayan Youth for Justice and Social Change (Ugnayan Youth) is a comprehensive grassroots organization of Filipino/Filipino American youth based in New York and New Jersey. Through collective leadership, progressive culture and community engagement, we strive to reclaim and re-root to the true history of the Filipino/Filipino-American people to better understand how our local and personal issues and struggles are interconnected. We contribute to various movements for justice, peace, and genuine liberation of the Filipino people wheresoever we may call home and build our community.

Our mission is to unite  young people of Filipino heritage to transform society through critical education, community research and grassroots collective action. Ugnayan envision that all young people are valued as empowered, conscious, and key community members who dare to struggle for justice and social change.

Through gaining individual donors, organizing special events and getting donations for merchandise, grassroots fundraising is a fun way to building more power to support the leadership of young people.
