GMA Pinoy TV is recognized for its constant contribution in elevating the Filipino culture and legacy embodied by a wide variety of inspiring Filipino stories in the Philippines and abroad.
Its “Stronger Together” campaign is also commended for its unwavering advocacy encouraging Filipinos around the world to be #Stronger Together amid the struggles due to the pandemic and the fight against Asian hate.
“We are strong as a people. Individually, we are strong. When we complement each other’s strengths, we are even stronger. As a community coming together, we are #StrongerTogether. In the face of the many challenges we continue to face, let us celebrate each other’s strengths. Collectively, let us be the #StrongerTogether Movement and be the force to reckon with in America, and the world,” GMA International First Vice President and Head of Operations Joseph T. Francia said.
