Please join the Filipino Lawyers of Washington (FLOW) and Filipino Lawyers of Washington Foundation for the Eleventh Annual Barrio Fiesta, which brings together attorneys, judges, and community leaders to celebrate the year's achievements and to recognize individuals and organizations that have contributed significantly to our communities. This is also the premier fundraising event for the FLOW Foundation, which provides scholarships to law students. Support and donations over the past 13 years have resulted in more than a dozen scholarships being awarded to students from all of Washington’s law schools and beyond.

After a few years away, we are excited to return to the Filipino Community Center.   We will be transforming the Filipino Community Center into a magical venue for our Barrio Fiesta. The evening will feature an authentic Filipino buffet, cultural presentations, dancing, and a surprise or two. 

Since its formation in 2008, FLOW has been dedicated to giving a voice to Filipino American attorneys on important legal issues in the State of WashingtonNow, more than ever, it’s important that we use that voice so that our community may be heard.  As such, we are proud to announce this year’s theme “Balikbayan: A Boorio Homecoming” celebrating our return to in person gathering to celebrate our extraordinary Filipino Legal Community and its supporters.
