Larry Itliong, the Filipino Labor Leader who Changed the Nation
In celebration of Filipino American History Month (#FAHM) we are proud to shine a spotlight on Larry Itliong and his remarkable achievements. From a Filipino immigrant to renowned labor organizer, Larry Itliong helped to revolutionize the West Coast labor movement. Larry Itliong immigrated to the United States in 1929 when he was a teenager, and worked as a laborer in Alaska. Since he was young he dreamed of working in the justice system, fighting for the rights of the poor.
