BAYAN-USA is a national alliance of 18 progressive Filipino organizations in the U.S. representing youth, students, women, workers, immigrants, scholars, and artists. Founded in 2005, it’s the oldest and largest overseas chapter of BAYAN-Philippines. For the past 10 years, BAYAN-USA has continued to educate and organize Filipinos around social and economic justice issues affecting our kababayan here in the U.S. and bridging them to the larger problems Filipinos still face in the Philippines. Our goal is to continue building and strengthening the national democratic movement to win genuine democracy, independence, and lasting change in the Philippines.
BAYAN-USA Southern California is one of the four regional areas represented in BAYAN-USA and includes local member organizations such as Anakbayan Los Angeles, Anakbayan Long Beach, Anakbayan Inland Empire, Anakbayan San Diego, GABRIELA Los Angeles, and Habi-Arts.
