Welga! Filipino American Labor Archives Project
Project Archivist / Oral Historian
Davis, California
I am a public history M.A. candidate at California State University, Sacramento. For the 2013-2014 Academic School Year, I was the President of the SAA CSUS Student Chapter. Currently, I am a student assistant (archival processing) at the California State Archives. For my thesis, I am creating a digital and physical archive dedicated to Filipino American labor history, starting off with Filipino American activism during the Delano Grape Strikes. Known as the Welga! Filipino American Labor Archives, the archives is hosted at the University of California, Davis' George Kagiwada Reserves Library, and the holding facility will be at the East Side Alliance Art Gallery at Oakland, California.
