Uncle Bob!

Uncle Bob, also known as Robert “Bob” Santos, is a recognized spokesperson and leader of the movement that began in the 1970s to preserve Seattle’s Chinatown/International District. He is a second generation son of Filipino immigrant Sammy Santos and an “Indipino” (Native American /Filipino). Now an author of the recently published book, “The Gang of Four”, Santos delivered a rousing conference luncheon presentation about the importance of networking, cultivating relationships and coalition building between ethnic groups and races.
