OUSD celebrates Filipino/a/x American History Month in October to recognize the rich history, culture, significant contributions and legacy of Filipinx Americans, including many of our students, families and staff, to our city, country and California.
Since 2009, the U.S. Congress and California have recognized October as Filipino American History Month and California recognizes October 25 as Larry Itliong Day to honor the Filipino labor leader who spearheaded the great Delano grape strike.
