While in Manila in 2010, she and a group of her colleagues had the opportunity to visit the 43 imprisoned community health workers known as the "Morong 43". After spending three hours eating, talking, laughing, and crying with those in Morong 43, Melanie realized that she needed to do something about the injustice. After returning to the US, Melanie set out to educate her campus and the surrounding community about the Morong 43. This campus movement, along with many others worldwide, helped contribute to the release of 41 of the 43 health workers on December 10, 2010.A roundtable discussion on human rights in the Philippines in the case of Marong 43.  Click here to download an event flyer.

In Her Mother's Image Dramatic Reading

In Her Mother's Image

In Her Mother's Image is the story of a mother and daughter who are entangled in a web of longing and antipathy set amidst the chaos of WWII in the Philippines and thirty years later in 1971.  The war is seen through the eyes of a headstrong eight-year-old child who bears witness to an act of betrayal committed by her formidable mother.  A betrayal that will be revisited thirty years later when the daughter goes back to the land of her birth to face the source of her lifelong torment - her own mother.  Join 'Artis Mundi', a multicultural theater arts group, and author Cecilia Gaerlan as they present a multi-media staged adaptation of her novel.  Contact Jessica Lemaux (415-422-6515 or jnlemaux@usfca.edu) for more information.  Click here for a copy of the press release.
