The vision of My Rizal 150 is “every Filipino knowing Rizal” and its mission is to deepen Filipinos’ knowledge and appreciation of Rizal by encouraging all sectors of society to find meaningful ways to celebrate his sesquicentennial. It is our fervent hope that ultimately, with our renewed understanding of Rizal’s heroism and ideals, every Filipino will be inspired to emulate Rizal and work towards the strong Filipino nation he envisioned for us. The My Rizal 150 group includes Rizal family descendants, friends of Rizal, and nationalists.
My Rizal–celebrating the Rizal in Me–is for everyone. One does not need to be a Rizal descendant, or come from a specific country. Rizal’s ideals, as exemplified by his life, his works and his heroism, are universal.
