One year after the Filipinotown marker went up in Los Angeles, a crew of volunteers gathered Sunday to keep the area from becoming a dumping ground, reports GMA.
“Some people are really insensitive making the marker their ashtray for their cigarette butts, old clothes and magazines, and even old picture frame,” said Dr. Orly Cagampan, vice president of the Rampart Village Neighborhood Council (RNVC). “We cannot wait for the city and let the trash stays,”
Filipino American community leaders put out the call for volunteers after noticing how the area had become trashy. You can read about the significance of the marker and the long delay to get it built in GMA.
