Celebrate Filipino American History Month at Topaz Arts

Join NYState Assemblyman Brian Barnwell on Saturday, October 28th at 4:30pm at Topaz Arts, as we honor the following for the great work they have done for the Filipino-American community:

• Ambassador Mario de Leon Jr.,
• Stella Abrera,

Filipinos have been on the Continental U.S. for the last 430 years when sailors from the Philippines landed in Morro Bay in California. Spearheaded by the Filipino American Historical Society (FANHS), Filipino American History Month was passed by resolution in the US Congress in 2009.
