Tonight we’ll be talking about climate change from here to the Philippines. APEX contributor Ellen Choy brings us coverage of exciting new work in the Filipino community: Filipino/American Coalition for Environmental Solidarity (FACES) a transnational, multi-organization campaign for climate justice. We also talk with people who participated in relief missions in the Philippines. They draw connections between the work that is being done in the Philippines and environmental justice struggles here in the U.S.

Finally, we hear about a delicious monthly event in Oakland from the Filipino Diaspora Kitchen: AfroPino, with this month’s guest of honor, Sugar Pie DeSanto.
