About

OPEN THE LIGHT is a PROJECT about the dreams, sacrifices, and triumphs of Filipino-Americans. Our goal is to be a spotlight for the stories of prominent people of this dynamic culture. We strive to be source of inspiration and pride for those who are Filipino/Filipino-American ancestry, and to provide insight for those who might not know much about Filipino-Americans and their contributions. After the 2010 census, Filipinos are expected to be the largest Asian group in the United States — however they are still referred to as an “invisible minority”.
