On Dec. 6, 2014, a “Know Your Rights” forum was held at St. Elizabeth of Hungary in Linden, N.J.

It was sponsored by the Union County Apostolate headed by Dwight Malapit and National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA) headed by state chairperson Nimfa Tinana.

Guest speaker was JT Mallonga, NaFFAA national chair, assisted by Atty. Merit Salud of the Filipino American Legal Defense and Education Fund (FALDEF) and NaFFAA national directorate on advocacy.

Mallonga spoke about the rights of qualified undocumented Filipinos under President Obama’s executive actions.

Another forum was held the next day at Voorhees, N.J. Public Library sponsored by the PhilAmerican Federation of PA, NJ and Delaware headed by Dr. Wilhilmina Dumo and Gwen Devera, special liaison of Camden County to the Fil-Am community.

It is also aimed at preventing the undocumented from falling victims to scammers, including pseudo lawyers.
