Anakbayan is the comprehensive national democratic organization of the Filipino youth working to educate, organize and mobilize our community to address important issues that affect Filipinos in the U.S. and the Philippines. We aim to unite Filipino youth of all backgrounds in order to achieve genuine freedom and democracy in the Philippines.
