Who do you admire as a Pinay Activist? October is Filipino American History Month. According to the Filipino American National Historical Society, this year's theme is The History of Filipino American Activism.

"We believe this theme is particularly crucial in 2020, as it is a key election year and we are living amidst a pandemic and mass movement towards racial justice. Thus, we encourage all of our chapters and communities to reflect on decades of Filipino American activism, in order to inspire and foster our civic responsibility in the Filipino American community." - FANHS
