We're organizing our community to help develop SOMA Pilipinas, San Francisco's newest cultural district in the heart of Tech 2.0.

Our Mission

It’s no secret that San Francisco’s SOMA district has become the home to some of the biggest tech companies on the planet like Uber, Twitter, and Airbnb just to name a few. What few people understand is that lack of community sensitivity combined with tremendous growth has lead to the displacement of the large Filipino community that inhabited SOMA.

But things are about to change.

We’re calling on all Filipinos in Tech to come together and mobilize our resources to help our community grow stronger.
