Kapwa Conference 2009!


San Francisco, CA- The Pin@y Educational Partnerships (PEP) along with the Fulbright-Hays Philippines Study Tour 2008, will host the second Kapwa Conference: Global, Local, Personal. The Kapwa Conference will focus on the work of California educators to better serve the growing cultural diversity of today’s student population. This conference will specifically explore the educational experiences and issues that Filipina/o and Filipina/o American youth face today, as well as a focus on the history of colonialism, identity, and the development of survival strategies that foster healing and community building.

Rooted within Philippine Indigenous Psychology, Kapwa describes a sense of shared identity, oneness, interconnectedness, and holism with others. Through panels, roundtables, workshops, exhibits and performances, the Kapwa conference will explore the intersections of Global, Local, and Personal perspectives that provide a sense of understanding and approaches to better serve the Filipina/o and Filipina/o American youth community.

Advanced Registration will be $30. General (Walk-Up) Registration will be $40. Free registration will be given to youth under 18 with a student I.D.

**No one turned away for lack of funds**
