Carlos Bulosan Centennial Commemorated with Free Events

A broad coalition of educators, union activists, community organizers, and artists have organized a two-month-long series of free events to commemorate Carlos Bulosan’s 100th birthday and to cement his place in Seattle’s history. The events will share Bulosan’s history, artistic work and impact even today on contemporary social justice issues.

This project is funded in part by a Neighborhood Matching Fund award from the Seattle Department of Neighborhoods.

As a radical labor organizer and author of the book “America is in the Heart,” Bulosan set the groundwork for Seattle’s rich history of labor activism and community organizing, from the Alaskeros and ILWU Local 37 activists to the fight for community preservation in the International District. The organizing committee aims to connect the events of the past with today’s civil rights, immigration, and labor movements.

Members of the Carlos Bulosan Centennial include: Filipino Community of Seattle, Wing Luke Museum, Inlandboatmen’s Union Region #37, Pinoy Words Expressed Kultura Arts, Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance, SEIU, University of Washington, LELO, Northwest Film Forum, and many more!

All events are free to the community! For more information and to RSVP for each event, contact
