Gambling addiction is related to breaking up Asian Pacific Islander families in San Jose and many families in the Bay Area share the same problem. Come learn about responsible gaming, strategies to strengthen family relationships and next steps to reclaim resources for our community. When our community comes together, we will find that we all have similar experiences in our family's journeys through gambling addiction and we need to incite a movement of our own to keep our families together.

Cost to attend is free (donations appreciated)
Food will be provided
This is a significant, relevant issue facing our community. If you're in the area, come on out and be a part of the discussion (and partake in some free food). For further information about First Thursdays, go to the AACI website here and the Facebook event page here.
