20 December 2010, Washington D.C. – Philippine Ambassador to the United States Willy C. Gaa met with Mrs. Loida Nicolas-Lewis, chair emeritus of the National Federation of Filipino American Associations (NaFFAA), and several Filipino community leaders last December 17 to pursue discussions regarding the drive in support of the Save Our Industries Act (SAVE Act).  It is hoped that Filipino-American voters will closely engage and energize legislators to succeed in the campaign.
