Filipino Community
  • The Filipino community is one of the oldest Asian American communities in Colorado dating back to 1954 with the establishment of the Filipino-American Community of Colorado or FACC. 

  • Census shows that there are about 30,000 Filipinos in Colorado, fourth largest AAPI group behind Chinese, Indian and Korean.

  • Maintaining a sense of family is a key feature of Filipino culture. Regional organizations that arrange social events to preserve community and culture are an important part of Filipino American life.
