Washington DC–IN THE EYE OF THE SNOW STORM; JFAV LOBBY, MARCH 2017. 

We lobbied 29 representatives and 5 senators today for the Filipino Veterans Fairness Act to be introduced in 2017.

What is full equity for JFAV? This is not retroactive. This is fairness. Reduced from $1.2 billion in 2013, the budget is estimated at $600 million.

That is, we demand military pension for veterans (~$2000 each month) and survivors pension for widows to cover the remaining 15,000 to 20,000 WWII Filipino-American veterans who are passing away at a rate of 10 per day.

JUSTICE DELAYED IS JUSTICE DENIED. “–#pilipinx#propeopleyouth #ugnayannynj #filipino #california #veterans #newyork#washingtondc #community #solidarity #lobbying #socialjustice #filam
