Join us for an evening of music, food and education!
All proceeds go towards Faith Delegation to the Philippines.

The International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines (ICHRP) with the National Council of Churches in the Philippines is organizing a “Pilgrimage” for people of faith from across the globe to the Philippines in early 2023. Delegates will have the opportunity to meet with faith leaders and frontline community members to verify and document human rights abuses committed under the Marcos II Regime, and strengthen our solidarity with faith partners in the Philippines.

Under the Marcos II administration, the rampant human rights violations under the Duterte regime have continued. Additionally, the economic hardship and crushing poverty experienced by many Filipino families has only worsened as the global economic crisis has caused inflationary prices, and ongoing natural calamities continue to ravage the Philippines.

Those exposing the cruelty and indifference of the administration in the face of this hardship, including faith leaders, have been intimidated and targeted with arrest and even death. Now more than ever, there is a need to grow our international solidarity with the Filipino people in the fight for peoples' rights.

ICHRP-PDX will be sending one delegate, Ann Muir, from the United Church of Christ to participate in this solidarity mission, and we need your help to ensure we can help cover the following costs:

  • International and domestic travel expenses
  • Housing
  • Food
  • COVID tests

Ann believes her trip does not end when she leaves the Philippines, but continues here in the US as she shares back what she witnessed and continues her advocacy work. If you would like to learn more please reach out to ICHRP-PDX and we can coordinate a report back and/or invite you to future events.

Thank you for supporting solidarity work and for standing up for human rights in the Philippines!
