La Ti Do strives to be a premier community of cultural and artistic diversity and inclusion through music and spoken word collaboration.
Filipino Veterans and Education Project (FilVets) is a nonpartisan, community-based, all-volunteer national initiative whose mission is to raise awareness through academic research and public information and obtain national recognition of Filipino and Filipino-American WWII Soldiers across the United States and Philippines for their wartime service to the U.S. and the Philippines from July 1941 to December 1946.
