Since 1973, FAJ has been an advocate for immigrant and civil rights by providing direct services, developing leaders, and organizing and advocating on issues important to the Filipino community as a historically underserved ethnic minority. We serve at-risk middle and high school-age youth, low-wage workers vulnerable to exploitation, and the newly arrived immigrants and undocumented, by helping them navigate the challenges of life in the US.

For more than 40 years, Filipino Advocates for Justice has nurtured leadership among Filipino and other youth to enhance their civic capacity and help them organize their communities for meaningful change.

Our leadership development mission evolved from supporting low-wage workers in the early 2000’s displaced Airport workers to empowering and protecting vulnerable domestic workers, particularly caregivers in California and nationally.

YOUTH LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT

“The lessons I’ve learned through PYC still help me a lot ... I’ve also learned how to be really effective when dealing with my personal problems. I would not have the confidence to be myself today had I not experienced everything I did through PYC. I hadn’t heard anything about self-love and mental health before. I carry the knowledge and skills with me everywhere.” - Geena, 18

WORKER SUPPORT AND EMPOWERMENT

“As a live-in caregiver I was paid $75/day for a 24-hr day. That’s a little more than $3/hr. I learned from FAJ that this not legal and they helped me file a wage theft complaint. I won after a long fight.” - Mona, 63
