KmB is a volunteer-run organization serving the greater Los Angeles and San Diego areas. We unite youth and build the larger community’s understanding of the need for national and social liberation for our local communities as well as the Philippines by creating spaces to share ideas, analyze society, and think critically. Our studies and training workshops are geared towards advancing the knowledge and skills of the youth to be proactive leaders integrated within the community. By putting theory into practice, KmB addresses a wide range of issues that contribute to working towards systemic change.
KmB works nationally and internationally with organizations who unite the working class and create conditions for self-determination. KmB stands against interventionist policies and practices that subjugate the people.
General meetings are held every last Sunday of the month, 1-3pm at Filipino American Service Group Inc. in Historic Filipinotown, Los Angeles, CA.
All members are between the ages of 13-35 years of age. Those 12 and under are Provisionary Members, while those 36 and over are Honorary Members.
