California lawmakers approve highway named for late Fil-Am leader Alice Bulos

A major tribute for a Bay Area Fil-Am icon moves a step closer to realization as the California State Legislature approves the renaming of a highway after late community leader Alice Bulos.

ACR 165, Ting. Alice Peña Bulos Memorial Highway.
This measure would designate a specified portion of State Route 35 that runs through the City of Daly City in the County of San Mateo as the Alice Peña Bulos Memorial Highway.
Bulos attended UST in 1948, graduating with a bachelor and master’s degree in social and behavioral sciences. She was a sociology professor and head of the UST Sociology Department before resigning in 1977 to be an employment counselor in Sacramento, California.

Bulos and her husband Dony founded the Filipino American Grassroots Movement, a campaign to involve Filipinos in the American political process. She fought for the rights of Filipino veterans of World War II and was named Woman of the Year for the 19th Assembly District in 2006.

From 1993 to 2000, she served as an appointee of US President Bill Clinton to the Federal Council on Aging. She was also a representative to the White House Conference on Aging in 1995.

Bulos served as a board member of San Mateo County Chapters of the American Heart Association, American Lung Association, American Red Cross, Community Initiative on Multiculturalism and the Northern California Disaster Preparedness Network.

She was also as charter president of the Fil-Am Democratic Club in San Mateo County, regional chair of the National Filipino-American Women’s Network and board member of the National Asian/Pacific Democratic Council. - Varsitarian.net
