Education is a Human Right

Screen Shot 2015-08-06 at 11.35.39 PM


Anakbayan New Jersey, local chapter of Anakbayan USA, is gathering stories and insight from Filipin@ youth in New York/ New Jersey about their experiences in trying to attain formal education.

Anakbayan-USA considers education to be a human right that should be free and available to all. It is a government’s responsibility to educate its youth. However, as of 2014, over 40 million people in the US hold student debt that amounts to $1.2 trillion. Due to the cuts in government funding for public education, more students are forced to take loans to be able to pay for their education.

We want to uplift our community’s stories. Please take our survey, and ask 3 family members/ friends to take it as well.

Thank you for participating!
