I am sad at the passing of Alice Bulos, our esteemed Filipino American leader. Alice, our community's Shero, an extraordinary citizen, led almost single-handedly the campaign to amplify the Filipino American voice encouraging more FilAms to run for elected office and hounding elected officials to appoint more FilAms to powerful boards and commissions. When I ran for SFDCCC, my first donation check came from Alice.
She had a clear vision for our community's future, always persuading rather than demanding, that we set aside our personal differences for the common good. Alice's legacy summed up: Beacon of Filipino American politics.
