Filipino American History Month 2018
Filipino American History Month (FAHM) has been in celebration since 1982, when it was first declared by the Filipino American National Historical Society (FANHS) to commemorate the first Filipinos that landed in Morro Bay, California on October 18, 1587. In 2009, the U.S. Senate passed U.S. House Resolution 780, which recognized October as Filipino American History Month across the United States. In 2010, the governor of New York and the mayor of New York City also proclaimed FAHM in the month of October. In 2015 and 2016, President Obama hosted FAHM Celebrations in the White House.
For 2018, FANHS Metro New York will be hosting or supporting multiple events throughout New York City.
