Since 1999, Ugnayan ng Kabataang Pilipino sa Canada/ Filipino-Canadian Youth Alliance has hosted “Roots, Rhymes and Resistance” an annual cultural showcase featuring the talents of Filipino youth. RRR is a venue for margnizalized youth to express and communicate their concerns with issues such as migration, racism, gender and identity. Through poetry, song, dance, hip hop, music and art, youth are able to share their experiences. With cultural forms, they educate and empower not only themselves, but the community.

This year the theme is PANAHON NATIN: Our Moment, Step Up! Stand Out! We want to create our own identity as Filipinos, as Canadians and not abide to the stereotypes and script laid out for us by society! So here we are. Young and full of talent, creating a voice for tomorrow’s generation!
