UniPro to Host Second Annual Summit in June 2012
New York , NY - On Saturday, June 2nd, 2012, UniPro (Pilipino American Unity for Progress) will host their second annual Summit for Filipino Young Professionals, Students, and Youth. The purpose of the Summit is to provide a safe space for honest dialogue for young Filipinos from throughout the world. In attendance last year were delegates from across the United States, United Kingdom, Australia, Qatar, and the Philippines, who participated in discussions focusing on the theme "Building Bridges: Locally, Regionally, Globally." The Summit for 2012 will take place in New York City, the same weekend as many other Filipino American community events, including the annual Philippine Independence Day Celebration Parade.
Bryan Lozano, UniPro’s Executive Director, states, “I cannot stress enough about the importance of UniPro's Summit. It's a safe space, a community dialogue, an incubator for ideas and means for Pilipino communities around the world to build bridges with each other. We are extremely excited about continuing such a valuable event and about the possibilities that can be grown through this year’s collaborations.”
