The Asian-American, Native Hawaiian, Pacific Islander (AANHPI) Disability Awareness Project presents its first Summit, "Making the Invisible Visible, Breaking the Stigma," on Saturday, October 22nd, , from 10:00 am - 2:00 p.m. in the Will C. Wood Middle School Multipurpose Room, 420 Grand Street in Alameda, California. For more information, please contact Austin Tam, Disability Advocate, (510) 882-2908

The purpose of the Summit is to raise visibility for those living with disabilities and mental health conditions in the AANHPI communities. In doing so, we hope to break the stigma which exists in our cultures, which we will do so through sharing of stories and facilitation of discussion groups.


In August 2017, Alameda will host the World Baseball Tournament, featuring 14 and 15 year old baseball teams from around the world. The international tournament will feature teams from Australia, Mexico, Germany, Japan, Italy, Korea, and Singapore playing against teams from San Diego, Hawaii, Fresno, and Alameda. It is common practice for the host country to home-stay the international players. 

The Alameda World Baseball Team is looking for families to help host international players who will be in Alameda for the tournament. We are also looking for volunteers to work at the tournament, and corporate  and individual sponsors to help offset the cost of hosting this prestigious event. All donations will be tax-deductible.


If you are interested in learning more about the tournament or hosting a player, please contact Ken Cala, the President of the Board, at (510) 917-8280 or kenc@lowerythomas.com, Randy Marmor, Vice-President, at (510) 418-7451 or randy4sports@hotmail.com, or Bill Dal Porto, International Relations, at (510) 521-5564 or dalportobill@gmail.com.
