A California highway in the San Francisco Bay Area now bears the name of late Filipina civil rights activist Alice Peña Bulos, known as the “godmother of Filipino American politics.” 

Assemblymember Phil Ting, D-San Francisco, who sponsored the resolution to rename a portion of State Route 35 in Bulos’ honor, shared the unveiling of the highway signs in Daly City, just south of San Francisco, on Saturday. The Alice Peña Bulos Memorial Freeway will cover approximately 4 miles, according to the resolution, which passed in 2020.
