DALY CITY – Despite inclement Northern California weather last Saturday, Oct. 23, Fil-Am supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo’s bid for the presidency replicated her Philippine volunteers’ “pink caravans” in 30 major cities in the archipelago.

Some 50 cars, SUVs, vans and mini trucks moved around the densely Filipino populated areas in Daly City and South San Francisco with “Biyahe ni Leni” Caravan of Hope to drum up support for the vice president.

Volunteers came in their vehicles adorned with pink tarpaulins, posters, ribbons, balloons, artwork and costumes and excitedly took turns chanting and cheering Robredo. They intend to hold a caravan at least once a month leading up to the May 2022 elections.

The Bay Area motorcade started in a popular Filipino food chain branch on Mission Street in Daly City and ended at a  favorite Filipino shopping and food complex at Callan Street in South San Francisco .

Filipino American Human Rights Alliance (FAHRA) leader Ago Pedalizo bared that organizers held a virtual video meeting with fellow Filipino leaders from Macau, Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Europe and the Middle East to discuss different campaign events in the next three months.

Organizers slated the next caravans for Oct. 31, in Los Angeles, DC and Chicago; Nov. 15 in Daly City and Dec 12 in Daly City and LA.    .    .  .
