Emilyn (Emi) Vallega

Pilipino Workers Center.
Emi Vallega is the Communications and Resources Development staffer at the Pilipino Workers Center (PWC). She also acts as the Communications Coordinator for the California Domestic Workers Coalition, and Executive Secretary and Communications Coordinator for the Los Angeles Chapter of the Asian Pacific American Labor Alliance (APALA). Emi graduated from California State University at Northridge with a BA in Asian American Studies in 2013, and believes that building our movement requires an investment in developing and mentoring our youth. In this spirit, she also serves as the Los Angeles representative for APALA’s National Young Leaders Council. Her passion for community work stems from her immigrant parents’ origins as farm laborers in California’s Central Valley. Since childhood, Emi’s parents have stressed the importance of raising the Filipino community’s voice, inspiring her to work not just for her own community but for all communities who are disenfranchised.
