Last Sunday, 45 Akbayan members took a trip to San Francisco for the SOMA Tour given by the Bayanihan Community Center. Here they learned about the Filipino history of South of Market street and certain locations of the city. The group had visited multiple sites in the downtown area, viewing beautiful murals and learning the history and meaning behind why they were made. The SOMA Tour was a great experience for Akbayan to become more exposed to the Pilipino culture, even in our local cities.
