The month of May is Mental Health Awareness Month and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. The Filipino Student Association at City College organized a panel discussion on May 5 at the Student Health Center to commemorate this. City College is a community college serving a diverse student population, should be responsible for providing spaces like this and resources and support for students from all backgrounds. This includes mental health resources that are culturally sensitive and appropriate for the needs of Filipino/a/x and BIPOC students.
In celebration of Filipino and Filipino-American culture, the Philippine Studies department and City College’s Outreach program participated in the 23rd annual Pistahan parade from San Francisco Civic Center to Yerba Buena Gardens.
