Meeting Lorenzo Reyes Tañada III

Meeting Hon. Lorenzo Reyes Tañada III was truly a great honor. As I always say, we don't really meet politicians or public servants all the time especially ones who are not directly impacting our lives here in our city, province or municipality.

We met him during an event organized by the USC STAND Alumni Foundation wherein the group expressed their support the Hon. Tañada's governance advocacy which shall eventually becomes an instrument for social justice and meaningful change. Now on this third term at the Lower house, Tañada has a string of laws on human rights, environment and other social concerns that he helped formulate and pass for the betterment of our countrymen.
