Pinay HERStories

There are a number of instances when our stories, as women, as Filipinas, are lost and relegated to the outskirts of history. Pinay HERstories hopes to reclaim the Filipino migrant narrative by collecting fragments of the shared migrant experiences. Join us for a night of readings and performances with migrant women who are students, trafficked victims, activists, nurses, and domestic workers. Stories will highlight the resilience of Filipino migrant women and power of community in their lives.

You can also meet the women of Filipinas for Rights and Empowerment (FiRE) who have been organizing several local and global campaigns. Learn more about our current programs, our allied organizations, and how Pinays are building a community, here, in the New York City area.
