Naperville Community Forum Oct 30

Dear AASPI Friends:


Town Hall Meeting on Family Stress

Tuesday, October 30, 2007

7:00 – 9:00 p.m.

Naperville Police Department

Naperville, Illinois

AASPI is one of several agencies working with the Naperville Police Department to plan its first Town Hall Meeting/Seminar to address stress factors and the long-term effects of stress in families. Although the seminar is intended for all audiences, it is also an opportunity to spread AASPI’s grassroots efforts in the Western suburbs.

The purpose of the seminar is to make people aware of the local resources available to help families cope with stress, and to answer audience questions. AASPI will be one of 9 agencies featured at the seminar. Naperville has a large Asian American population, and we hope that this seminar will be the start of a sustained, collaborative effort at the community level to meet the needs of Asian American families in the Western suburbs.

Thanks so much,
