[Social] Potluck and Game night! 

Saturday, October 27 at 6 PM – 10 PM
1765 Sutter St.

Hey folks! It's that time of year again where we gorge ourselves on food made by other people while trying to blow each other up with kittens, accusing each other of being werewolves, and building a very long road that doesn't really go anywhere.

In other words, it's Nakayoshi's Potluck and Game night! Bring your fav games and food to share and let's have at it! 

See this Facebook event for more details!

[Civic Engagement] What's On Your Ballot?


Sunday, October 14, 2018 at 12 PM – 3 PM

The midterm elections are Tuesday, November 6. Do you know what's on the ballot? Nakayoshi is hosting an event for people to come together and share what we know about the candidates and propositions on the November ballot. Plus we'll be having a potluck lunch for all to enjoy!

We'll cover statewide issues first, followed by local (San Francisco) issues, and we'll have voter registration forms available. Bring some food to share!

Allegiance Northern California Summit


Sunday, Oct 7th at 1:30 PM – 7:30 PM
Contra Costa Civic Theatre
951 Pomona Ave, El Cerrito 94530

Calling all NorCal/East Bay Nikkei Youth! 

Whether incarceration has been a part of your family’s dialogue or is a shameful part of America’s history that you want to learn more about, Allegiance is a one of a kind opportunity to see one family’s story in a musical format. Through this youth summit, we will be watching Allegiance together followed by a discussion to decompress then an interactive workshop. 

As part of JACL’s youth programming, costs of tickets will be subsidized for JACL youth members and youth applicants will be given priority for the summit! 

Register here and spread the word! Optional dinner to follow after the summit – build that Nikkei community!
