SoMa Pilipinas EthnoTour
October is Filipino American History Month! HPILF is co-sponsoring an awesome event with the Pilipinx American Law Society. Join PALS on the SoMa Pilipinas EthnoTour on Saturday, October 12: 11am to 1pm to learn more about Filipino History in South of Market! The tour will involve learning about historical events, struggles and legacies through the anthropological and historical lenses of the Filipino community in South of Market. Not only it does depict the history of SoMa Pilipinas, but also ongoing matters such as gentrification and displacement and the living history of our neighborhood. The flyer for this event can be found attached to this email. Please note there will be a $10-15 suggested donation, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds. Space is limited, so RSVP here: http://bit.ly/PALS_SoMaTour.
ASUCH's Halloween in the Tower
This is an annual event where Hastings hosts a safe trick-or-treat program for the children of the Tenderloin. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, Oct. 30 from 3-5pm if you are interested in being involved! But please note this time may change. If you live in the tower, it would be awesome if you would acquire candy to hand out to trick-or-treaters! If you are interested in having a more active volunteer role, such as helping to organize and/or helping with logistics on the night please reply to this email and we will give you the info you need/put you in touch with the right person.
