A nationwide learning community begins here …

 

While she was writing the book, JOURNEY FOR JUSTICE: THE LIFE OF LARRY ITLIONG, Dr. Dawn Mabalon asked her best friend and colleague, Dr. Allyson Tintiangco-Cubales, to create an accompanying curriculum. In 2001, Allyson founded Pin@y Educational Partnerships (PEP), an education pipeline that provides opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students to teach Ethnic Studies in classrooms in San Francisco. PEP has developed Filipina/o/x/American Studies curriculum from K-College and has grown into a national network of critical teachers/counselors/social workers/lawyers/professors/educators. Drawing from the PEP network, Allyson built a team of three former PEP teachers who now have their own elementary, middle, and high school classrooms at public schools with significant populations of Filipina/o/x/American students. These three phenomenal teachers, Aldrich Sabac, Daisy Lopez, and Aileen Pagtakhan are highly respected by their colleagues and students and are committed to teaching Ethnic Studies in their classrooms. This is the teachers guide that they created together to begin a nationwide effort to teach Filipino American history to all of our children.
