Welcome to LBCC’s online Asian Pacific Islander Desi (APID) cultural heritage resources, where you can find guides explicitly designed to support our APID community.
Student Resource Guide
The APID Student Resource Guide offers a variety of LBCC Student Services, tips to achieve academic success, information on transfer, off-campus resources, and much more. There are several resources specifically focused on serving our APID student community.
Library Resource Guide
The APID Library Resource Guide provides valuable resources to those interested in learning (and thinking critically) about the experiences of various APID groups. It is meant to empower the APID community with an affirmation of our own culture, identity, and valuable contributions to literature, academia, and the arts. The resource guide is a living repository of material. It includes lists of books, e-books, article databases, streaming videos, and accessible online resources.

Filipino Migrant Center
The Filipino Migrant Center (FMC) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization founded in 2010 to address the needs of Filipinos in the South Bay cities of Southern California and has since expanded to serve throughout the entire region. We are a Filipino immigrant-led organization who aims to educate, organize, and mobilize low-income, working class Filipino families. FMC believes that people who are most affected and impacted by social injustices should lead in developing long-term strategies to change systems of inequality. Through our programs and services, we support the leadership and empowerment of low-income youth, low-wage workers, immigrant women, and families so they can effectively engage in improving the conditions of their health, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, and environment.
