Little Manila Queens Bayanihan Arts and Filipino businesses are scheduled to unveil a new mural. This mural is located at the south east corner of 69th Street and Roosevelt Avenue, a common crossroads for immigrants in Queens. It is an area also known as “Little Manila” where the largest concentration of Filipino businesses are located in New York City.
Because so many Filipino Americans are on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic, it has taken a devastating and outsize toll on their community. Since April 5th, a NYC volunteer-run initiative called Meal to Heal NYC has brought 300+ free meals to hospitals and health facilities heavily staffed by Filipinos — while also raising funds to mutually support small businesses and help keep immigrant restaurants afloat.
This brief event will focus on:
• 𝗧𝗵𝗮𝗻𝗸𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝗲𝘀𝘀𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗮𝗹 𝗵𝗲𝗮𝗹𝘁𝗵𝗰𝗮𝗿𝗲 𝘄𝗼𝗿𝗸𝗲𝗿𝘀

• 𝗨𝗻𝘃𝗲𝗶𝗹𝗶𝗻𝗴 𝘁𝗵𝗲 “𝗠𝗮𝗯𝘂𝗵𝗮𝘆” 𝗺𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗹
