“E-Kapihan ng Bayan sa U.P.” is a public service project of the UPAA that aims to serve as a vehicle for intelligent and constructive discussion of issues relevant to the Filipino people’s advancement as a nation. In a democracy like the Philippines, such public discourse is a valuable tool for guiding the national leaders and all concerned citizens to collectively confront and attempt to resolve the challenges posed by current issues of general concern.
We look forward to your joining us at the e-Kapihan!
REYNALDO C. LASERNA
President and Alumni Regent

"Dear Fellow UP alumni,
I am sharing with you the flyer announcing the "Global Forum on Racism, Discrimination, and Asian Hate in support of the UNESCO Global Call Against Racism on June 26-27, 2021 [Philippine time: 11PM-2AM]. This is a UP alumni-led initiative by UPAA in America, Inc. and three European country organizations in Geneva, Germany and Netherlands in a collaborative endeavor to work together and focus on this issue that affects Filipinos who live and work in foreign countries especially in the United States, Europe and the Middle East.
President Danilo Concepcion will be giving a video message during the opening ceremonies along with Vice President Leni Robredo who will also give a video message. This event will feature speakers from top-ranking diplomatic corps, UN, international advocacy groups, as well as other notable individuals from the U.S. and Europe.
I hope that you would make time to attend even a short portion of this event, especially a Fellowship gathering of UP alumni at the end of each day. Your participation will be most appreciated. The link to register is also attached.
In U.P. spirit!
