The UPAA will host the next session of Kapihan ng Bayan sa U.P. on September 23, 2014, Tuesday, 3:00-5:00 PM, at the Salazar Hall of Ang Bahay ng Alumni, UP Diliman, Quezon City. The forum will closely examine a yet pending and still smoldering national issue — the “Bangsamoro Framework Agreement.”
The Kapihan will begin with remarks from U.P. President Alfredo E. Pascual, followed by an exposition of the topic by Ms. Amina Zalmia Rasul Bernardo, president of the Philippine Center for Islam and Democracy (PCID), as resource person.
All interested parties are invited to partake of the coffee on the house and join in the open discussions.
A project of the UPAA, “Kapihan ng Bayan sa U.P.” is a regular forum that aims to serve as a vehicle for intelligent and constructive discussion of issues relevant to the Filipino people’s advancement as a nation. In a democracy such as ours, public discourse is a valuable tool for guiding the national leaders and all concerned citizens to collectively confront and attempt to resolve the challenges posed by these issues.
