Hello OYFAmily!

Thanks for coming out to Super Kamayan yesterday and rolling lumpia with us! It was a blast cooking with you all! Now onto something a bit more heavy this week...

US Politics: This Friday, President Trump “passed an executive order that halted the US refugee programme for 120 days, banned Syrian refugees, and suspended nationals from 7 Muslim-majority countries for 90 days.”  He has also “ signed two executive orders Wednesday that call for building the wall and aim to deny federal funds to sanctuary cities that shield undocumented immigrants from deportation.

Whether you agree or disagree with the passed laws, we implore you to be mindful of your words and actions as members of our UVA/OYFA community may feel unsafe because of the passed executive orders.

Besides, Filipino Americans were under the gun of immigration bans last year so let’s stand by our friends who would’ve stood by us. We are a family so let’s try our best to make everyone know that they are loved and belong. #Solidarity

Word of the Week: “pamilya” (pah-meel-ya) means “family” and family means no one gets left behind or forgotten.  
Take care of yourselves and each other everyone!
~ ADVOCADOS (Melissa Lim mll3mm and Oanh Dao ond2sg)
