Dillon Delvo, executive director of Little Manila Rising, talks to Emil Guillermo about how the Stockton non-profit has expanded its mission to do more and to help more people in South Stockton. From preserving Filipino American history and historic buildings, the LMR's mission now includes public health initiatives and environmental efforts in community air monitoring. Beyond that, the non-profit has its eyes on owning and developing land and projects to benefit the broader South Stockton community. Delvo said Little Manila Rising just wants to do what other groups are doing around the state, go beyond marginalization to have a say in the future development of their community by accessing power and funds previously denied them.
