About the PhiliPPine AmericAn Press club, u.s.A. Established in 1988, PAPC was founded by former members of the National Press Club of the Philippines who had immigrated to the XC EL for San Francisco Bay Area and saw theEneedLE NCUS basedN E IN JO UR FilipinoAL IS M American media group. All fierce advocates for truth, fairness, and excellence in journalism, they realized the vital role of media education and advocacy for the fast-growing Filipino population. They represented a small but influential set of local Filipino publications: Philippine News, The Eye, Filipino Monitor, Philippine Examiner, Philippine Chronicle, Filipinas Magazine, and Filipino Guardian. We salute them all. We honor the vision of these men and women. Two decades later, some of those earlier publishers and publications have come and gone. But have since been replaced by newer but similarly engaged publishers and broadcasters such as ABS-CBN, Asian Journal, Philippines Today, Filipino American Radio Network, GMA7, Manila Mail, Inquirer.net, FilAm Star, and Philippine Headlines, to name a few.
