On December 8th at Filipino Food and Bakery, KAMP collaborated with AnakBayan San Diego (ABSD), and San Diego 350 to present an event commemorating the second anniversary of Typhoon Haiyan as part of Kapit Bisig Kabataan Network’s National Day of Remembrance.
ABSD members Ryth and Megan shared about their exposure trip this summer to the Philippines to work with communities most affected by the typhoon. The night also included performances by local artists as well as candlelight vigil. The night highlighted the larger connections between global climate change, social justice, and government corruption. Funds were raised to donate to the National Alliance of Filipino Concerns and their people-to-people efforts for rehabilitation and rebuilding.
