Luzonia is a loving, quirky, and creative group of leaders that was founded in 2011! Our mascot is the chicken and our fam color is maroon! We are known for having many leadership positions throughout Akbayan and being a "home away from home" for one another.
The name and theme behind Luzonia is based on the 2011 PCN directed by Jonathan Juntado - who eventually founded the fam. The PCN is based around a war and there are components of the play about cock fighting in the Phillippines - which is how our mascot formed. The name "Luzonia" is the title of the fictional country based on Filipino-American culture. (Fun Fact: Luzon is also an island in the Phillippines)
As a fam, we try our best to hangout at least once or twice a month! Some of our traditions consist of our annual Christmas party, going out to dinner, jam sessions, study dates, and.. of course.. catch us at Akbayan events! There is almost at least one Luzonian at every event. We are a pretty active fam in the organization, so you are bound to meet many of us. Don't be afraid to say hi! Let's be friends :-)
