POSITIVELY FILIPINO is a global plaza for sharing ideas, creative works and opinions. It serves as a venue for the frank exploration of our collective challenges both in the homeland and the diaspora. POSITIVELY FILIPINO celebrates our people’s heritage and achievements and is a proud promoter of role models and achievers.
POSITIVELY FILIPINO is also an advocate of Filipinos who may face injustice and discrimination in their temporary or adopted homes. It initiates or participates in campaigns that uphold their rights.
In America in the 1930s, Filipino immigrants often faced rejection and racism--a hotel in Stockton, California even posted a warning: “Positively No Filipinos Allowed".
Kababayans (compatriots) are positively welcome here, positively allowed to celebrate our heritage, and positively encouraged to explore our experiences.
