GABRIELA Seattle is a collective of Pin@ys celebrating our multifaceted identities, revolutionary history, and rich culture. We work to build a community in the Seattle area invested in educating, defending, and advocating for the human rights of Filipinas globally.
GABRIELA Seattle is a member of GABRIELA-USA, an overseas chapter of GABRIELA Philippines. GABRIELA-USA is an organization working to advance the struggle of women in the overall movement for national liberation and genuine democracy in the Philippines.
Pin@y is a term coined by Filipinos in the US during the 1920s to refer to women of Philippine descent. Pinay sa Seattle means Filipinas in Seattle. The @ sign in Pin@y signifies that gender identity and expression are not simply a binary construct. Women’s struggles and queer struggles are integrally linked to the larger movement for freedom of all our people.
