“People Power” events in the Philippines were a significant model in the “third wave” of democratization in that region the 1970s and 1980s. This chapter discusses evangelicals' role in People Power events from February 1986 to May 2001. The first section sketches the political landscape and the role of religion in recent Philippine history and defines Filipino evangelicalism. It then examines three kinds of evangelical involvement: participation in electoral processes, People Power uprisings, and civil society. It argues that Filipino evangelicals have grown in political maturity and have helped develop democracy.
