New #Blog Post: #Decolonization: An Ethos (Link in Bio) // I may be far removed from my Indigenous culture but I can still 1) know whose land I exist on (in New York, it’s the Lenape and in Seattle, it’s the Duwamish)  2) take time to learn about and respect my Indigenous roots (taking care to not romanticize the past) 3) resist the pressure of deadlines, being late, etc. by making time for self-care and self-love. #FilAmFormation #WalangHiya #AMAF

New #Blog Post: #Decolonization: An Ethos (Link in Bio) // “Decolonization is a continuous mental process that you have to will yourself to engage with on a daily basis. #FilAmFormation #WalangHiya #AMAF PC: @elteodoro

New #Blog Post: #Decolonization: An Ethos (Link in Bio) // “Decolonization is an ethos, a characteristic spirit of a culture, era, or community. It is a way of being.  It is a recognition of our colonized history and an intentional and impactful way of living one’s life to move us into a new era, one that is not centered on the systemic oppression of people to increase an empire’s wealth and power.” #FilAmFormation #WalangHiya #AMAF

Consider this a human rights artistic project. A visual statement that shows what it looks like to be different, yet think the same. Especially in a time like now, we wanted to bring people together to show our solidarity for Women's Rights. We are pro-women. And we stand together to support in whatever way we can. .

Together, we stand in solidarity to show our support for Women's Rights. We acknowledge our past as we move towards a collective future inclusive of women of color, transgender women & men, women with disabilities & women from all ages, religious faiths and backgrounds. We wear yellow and gold as a nod to the colors of the early American feminist movements, while expressing our hope and desires for a more intersectional and inclusive movement today. Different cities worldwide have joined the #UnityinColor movement and we're proud to share the #Brooklyn edition. .

Several months ago, @anonymousbui participated in the @unity_in_color Oakland edition and upon seeing the photos, I wanted to participate – how often do you see fierce photos of a diverse collective of womxn of color? .
S/O to my fellow militant mamacita @flerinecrystal for being my partner in crime in organizing this photoshoot. It was a growing experience and I look forward to our future creative projects (stay tuned!).

New #blog post: “…the arguments against Filipinx feel like we’re tearing one another down with either/or thinking. Why is it that we must self-identify as either Filipino/a or Filipinx? Why not both? Is it possible for us to hold that both terms came from movements of resistance in places with different conditions? How can we move away from the either/or thinking of our oppressors and move toward a both/and mindset?” Which culture do we honor? Those of our ancestors? Those of our homeland? Those of where we take up space now? The culture of the past? The culture we’re trying to create now in resistance to current systems of oppression? How do we have this conversation in a way that forwards us, helps us to grow and heals us?” // The Conversation Around #Filipinx (See Link in Bio)

New #blog post: “The term Filipino came from “the people themselves, who came together under a common national identity as Filipino, to unite the masses and engage in revolution.” // The Conversation Around #Filipinx (See Link in Bio)

New #blog post: “The term Filipinx is born out of a movement to create space for and acknowledge genderqueer members of the Filipin* diaspora in the white-centric binary places their parents decide to move to (e.g. the United States). “ // The Conversation Around #Filipinx (See Link in Bio) #pride

New #Blog Post: Why I Stay in New York (Link in Bio) // “In New York City, I am not confined to a certain version of AnneMarie. I can explore myself as a spiritual being, a healer, a writer, a creative, a curious thinker, a human. In ever encounter, new space and experience, I witness the parts that are uniquely and authentically me fight to be known in a place that wants to stamp out my counter-cultural ideas.” // #WalangHiya #AMAF #FilAmFormation 📷: @igotdistracted

New #Blog Post: Why I Stay in New York (Link in Bio) // “This city and its inhabitants tell me that this is all there is. That life is shit and unfair, that people are people wherever you go (rude, petty, prone to evil, etc.), and so on. And this is where I feel called to not fall for the limitations of the city, to re-imagine our world, to explore ways of living that treat people as humans not numbers and to live out prefigurative politics.” // #WalangHiya #AMAF #FilAmFormation 📷: @igotdistracted

New #Blog Post: Why I Stay in New York (Link in Bio) // “Resilience is the process of ‘getting comfortable with discomfort, adapting well, thriving in the face of adversity, trauma, threats and significant stress.’ #WalangHiya #AMAF #FilAmFormation 📷: @igotdistracted
