NaFFAA turns 20 in DC gala

WASHINGTON D.C. The National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA) will hold its 20th Anniversary Gala at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C. on Oct. 21.

With its theme “NaFFAA 2.0: One Voice, Four Million Strong,” the Gala will recognize NaFFAA’s 20-year legacy, and highlight its comprehensive vision to unite and amplify the voices of the four million Filipinos and Filipino Americans living in the United States.

“NaFFAA 2.0” represents how NaFFAA is honoring its past while forging a new forward-thinking and balanced approach in uniting, engaging, and empowering diverse Filipino American individuals and community organizations.

“The significance of this momentous 20th Anniversary celebration cannot be understated,” says NaFFAA National Chairman Brendan Flores.

“For NaFFAA to be able to commemorate twenty years of advocacy and leadership, in our nation’s capital, during Filipino American History Month, is a testament to the ingenuity and vision of our founders, the perseverance of our regional networks, and the emerging power of the greater Filipino American community. I invite everyone to come witness what an empowered community coming together looks like.”

NaFFAA’s 20th Anniversary Gala is expected to draw hundreds of attendees and media representatives from across the country and will feature prominent speakers, performers, and dignitaries.

During the Gala, NaFFAA will recognize and confer special awards to key Filipino American leaders, organizations, and corporate partners. NaFFAA will also showcase the collaboration between all generations: from students and young professionals, business leaders and elected officials, to community leaders and allies.
