A multiplicity of voices from the Philippine diaspora exploring visions we carry for our dynamic, intersectional communities in this historical moment. The blessings for our communities are expressed through essay, poetry, short story, living theory, photography, and illustration around themes of diaspora and memory; health and well-being; intersectionality; coalitional consciousness; family and radical parenting. With different people situated at different times and places, we shine a light on a journey of healing by naming our existence. It is our prayer that this book’s embodiment of a conscious radical love lives on through critical conversations that will shape our realities as Pilipinxs, as we continue to do the heartfelt work in our homes, classrooms, and growth spaces. May this spiritual offering be received as a living time capsule for Pilipinxs and beloved ones, in our process of becoming.
