Last week KAYA was proud to announce achievements in the Filipino American community.
• the re-election of Maryland State Delegate Kris Valderrama,
• appointments of two Filipino Americans to the President’s Advisory Commission,
• and KAYA’s own DC-Chapter members working in new leadership positions, Gregory Cendana, Interim Deputy Director of the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA) and Naomi Underwood Tacuyan, Director of AAPI Outreach at the Democratic National Committee (DNC).
• We also want to announce that a Filipino American, Maria Raffinan has been confirmed as an Associate Justice to DC Superior Court!
This is only the beginning.
As we celebrate Filipino American History Month this October, we want to recognize that Filipino Americans are making an impact. KAYA continues to help cultivate and grow our leadership so our community is visible at the political table.
