Filipino Voices

Filipino Voices is a powerhouse of Philippine bloggers who report and comment on news, politics, and society in this country and the rest of the world. Barely over a year old this April 1st, this group publication is the place for fostering a collective conversation on our direction as a nation.

Filipino Voices is more than a blog, it’s a start to the growing power of The Filipino to manifest his own destiny in the online world, which hopefully will have an impact on the physical and more tangible world we live in. Words are powerful and we the bloggers of know this to be the true power of this blog.
