USF Pilipino American Law Society Fundraised for Typhoon Haiyan Victims

November 21, 2013

The USF Pilipino American Law Society (PALS) raised $2,386, in addition to non-perishable items, to support those affected by Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines.

Monetary donations are being directed to the Transnational Institute for Grassroots Research and Action (TIGRA), which PALS selected for its longstanding commitment to social justice for disenfranchised Filipinos. Non-perishable items were sent to the West-Bay Pilipino Multi-Cultural Service Center, a community center in the South of Market serving underprivileged Filipino youth in the Bay Area since 1968. Items were donated in connection with the relief efforts led by the Filipino American Bar Association of Northern California.

“PALS humbly thanks its law school community for sincerely ‘changing the world from here,’” said Jennifer Sta.Ana 2L and Raymond Rollan 3L, PALS co-presidents. “Yet, PALS hopes that we stay mindful of how we daily affect developing nations, such as our contributions to environmental injustice and our economic choices, which may exacerbate the disparity between rich and poor countries.”
