On April 22th, Filipino-Canadian youth from across Winnipeg gathered at Canad Inns Polo Park for ANAK's #PINAGMULAN Youth Forum and Gala.

Participants also got to engage in youth lead discussion exploring identity and their own pinagmulan (origin).
The one-day forum concluded with a Gala Dinner where students were able to showcase their creativity and celebrate with community supporters, parents, and guests.
