This is Community Corner, a space for our members to catch up on events that they have missed, read team recommendations, and write to us!

For the fourth instalment of /ba·ca/ with New Naratif, our community heard from and discussed with researcher and activist, Teo S. Marasigan, and Migrante International Chairperson, Joanna Concepcion, about Overseas Filipino Workers (OFW) and the forces at play that allow for this phenomenon to continue despite the economic and humanitarian issues it has caused time and time again.
