Please join Filipina Women's Network for Afternoon Tea with Madame Evangeline (Vangie) Canonizado Buell, Sheroes and Legends Awardee 2012, Activist, Award-Winning Author, Musician, Powerful Storyteller, domestic violence survivor, FWN's Vagina Warrior 2004 and one FWN's 100 Most Influential Filipina Women in the United States 2007.
February is the month of love. Let's show Vangie how much we respect what she has accomplished for the Filipino American community. Let's show Vangie our FWN Sister LOVE!
Hear Madame Vangie's story of what it was like growing up as a Filipina woman in the United States; the discrimination, the harassment, the rules of what to wear, her experience of not being allowed to go to school (and how she navigated those rules), and how she endured signs such as "Positively No Filipinos and Dogs Allowed" in restaurants and public places.
Vangie's story is important to our culture and to hear it first-hand is precious to our history in the United States. Vangie is the Filipino American community's Maya Angelou. So BE there. Bring your daughters, your nieces, your sisters, your aunts, your women friends, your mothers. Bring the girls in your neighborhood to meet Vangie.
