Bayanihan Equity Center
The Bayanihan Equity Center was established as the Veterans Equity Center (VEC) which focused on providing direct services and advocating for full-justice and equity for Filipino World War II Veterans. Now the Bayanihan Equity Center (BEC) services have expanded to include low-income San Francisco seniors, people with disabilities, immigrants, LGBTQ, formerly incarcerated, and homeless individuals. The BEC is still rooted in honoring the bayani (heroes) of World War II, while continuing to serve the new bayani: immigrants, low-income seniors and adults with disability, and etc.
