Filam History Month Celebration in San Francisco





The Philippine Consulate General in San Francisco, together with the Bay Area Filipino American community, kicked off the celebration of Filipino American History Month in simple ceremonies held at the California Academy of Sciences (CAS).

Philippine Consul General to San Francisco Marciano A. Paynor, Jr. and Fil-Am Board of Education Commissioner Hydra Mendoza, representing San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom, cut the ceremonial ribbon officially marking the start of Filipino American History Month.

Earlier in the program, California State Senator Leland Yee spoke on his long years of collaboration and friendship with the Bay Area Filipino American community. Last month, Senator Yee authored and steered in the California State Legislature the passage of a bill that gave recognition to the role played by Filipinos and Filipino Americans in the history and development of the United States.
