I will be running my first New York City Marathon, the biggest marathon in the world, in order to raise funds for the Alliance of Filipinos for Immigrant Rights and Empowerment (AFIRE). AFIRE is a grassroots community organization that builds the capacity of Filipinos to organize on issues of social, racial, and economic justice that affect undocumented immigrants, domestic workers, seniors, and youth. I have been involved with this organization for nine (9) years now, and I can vouch for the integrity of the people behind AFIRE. We need your help in order to keep our programs going. Any amount of support is greatly appreciated.
