Celebrating Filipino American History Month 2023
This month is dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the rich history, culture, and contributions of Filipinx Americans to the United States.
Filipino American History Month (FAHM)* was established in October 1988 to commemorate the first recorded presence of Filipinxs in the continental United States, which occurred on October 18, 1587, when "Luzones Indios" came ashore from the Spanish galleon Nuestra Senora de Esperanza and landed at what is now Morro Bay, California. As we enter FAHM, we celebrate and recognize the vibrant and diverse Filipinx community at UC Berkeley.
Two students share resources, clubs, orgs.
Founded in 1987, PAAC is one of the culturally-affiliated Cal alumni chapters chartered through the Cal Alumni Association (CAA) of UC Berkeley. PAAC promotes professional networking and social opportunities through campus and community volunteer service as well as sponsorship of student mentorship and scholarship programs. PAAC is committed to supporting the alumni, students, CAA and campus at UC Berkeley. Join the Facebook group or follow @calpilipinxalumni on Instagram.
This group aims to connect the Berkeley community in the Philippines and serve as a platform for alumni and students to network with each other and stay engaged with the university.
