Chrissi will be leading a team of Filipino American youth and students in a summer mission trip to the Philippines from July to August 2019!
Chrissi Fabro is a Filipina American born and raised in NYC and lived most of her life in Queens. Originally from Flushing, NY, love for her home city would inspire her to organize the community against gentrification.
Inspired by the stories of migrant workers fighting for their rights, she decided to become a community organizer and activist in 2011. She organized around the issues of human trafficking, gentrification and displacement, immigration, and education as a Filipino youth organizer.
Chrissi currently serves as the external vice president of Kabataan Alliance, a national alliance of Filipino youth across the U.S. committed to advancing the rights and welfare of communities through education, unity and action
