Filipino American Community of Los Angeles (FACLA)


The Filipino American Community of Los Angeles (FACLA) was established in April 26, 1945. It is the oldest non-profit organization in the United States.

The history of FACLA is colorful and is deeply ingrained in the interesting century old history of the Filipino American community in the United States.

It is etched and embroiled in its sixty eight (68) year turbulent history from the American “benevolent assimilation” of the Philippines during the turn of the century to its independence as a nation and its birth pains as a young republic.

It also experienced the nightmare of a dynastic dictatorship and again as it rebirth into democracy and progress for the last 30 years.
