Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

Our Mission

Founded in 1973, AACI is one of the largest community-based organizations advocating for and serving the marginalized and vulnerable ethnic communities in Santa Clara County. Our mission is to strengthen the hope and resilience of our community members by improving their health, mental health and well-being.

Making A Difference Through History

Our many programs address the health and well-being of the individual and advances our belief in providing care that goes beyond just health, but also provides people a sense of hope and new possibilities. Below are a few notable highlights from the last 20 years.

Mental Health
In the early 1990s, AACI played a key role in reversing a State Department of Mental Health (DMH) directive declaring para-professionals ineligible to provide therapeutic counseling to the emotionally ill. Since there is a scarcity of licensed bilingual/bicultural Asian mental health professionals in the United States, the directive would in effect deny services to many non-English/limited English speaking Asians in California.

Political representation
AACI’s leadership in fostering Asian involvement in the electoral process led to the formation of the AACI Community Empowerment Task Force in 1991. The group’s responsibility was to address political redistricting (the adoption of new county and city political boundaries) in both Santa Clara County and the City of San Jose. Task force members participated in the County’s redistricting commission, provided demographic information and ensured that perspectives vital to fair representation of the Asian communities were heard.

Research
AACI’s study on the “Glass Ceiling” phenomenon, based on a survey of hundreds of Asian professionals in the Bay Area, was published in the fall of 1993. The study’s findings exposed the hiring and promotion barriers Asians encounter and facilitated action toward eliminating the barriers.

Health
A new diabetes registry launched in 2009 allows AACI physicians to more closely monitor trends and patterns in patients’ health status and make appropriate care and treatment recommendations.

Civil rights
The Silicon Valley Asian American Voices project, publicly launched in March 2010, uses a website, social media, policy briefs and community dialogues to tell the stories of Asian immigrants to inspire action in support of immigrant communities.

Representation
AACI played a key leadership role in the 2010 census by canvassing neighborhoods to promote the importance of participation, conducting ethnic media outreach, and serving as a Census Questionnaire Assistance Center in order to bring adequate federal funds and resources to the local community. Participation rates increased 10% within AACI’s targeted neighborhoods.

Advocacy
AACI advocated for law enforcement to have more cultural sensitivity and mental health training in San Jose in response to police incidents involving Asian residents. AACI hosted community meetings, provided training and worked with city leaders to improve safety and communication.

AI Academy
Business Name:
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine learning (ML) is going to change everything around us just like Electricity did 100 years ago. We wanted to make sure the upcoming middle school and high school students are prepared for this shift. It is with this intent that we started AI Academy.

There is a lot of material on AI/ML available online but we felt real learning would be more effective if done interactive and with emphasis on real world problems. So we have structured our offerings to be in person (class/zoom) lessons. Our focus has been to not just teach students concepts of artificial intelligence/machine learning but also how to apply it to real-life problems. Students do many exercises and a group project at the end of the course to apply all they have learned.We have been teaching upper-middle school and high school students since the fall of 2018. We have also taught international students at San Jose State University.

Arpana Dance Company
Business Name:
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

Combining the best of both Eastern and Western teaching methods, I hope to instill in the students a love for dance. The students start in small groups learning the basics - posture, movements, rhythms, gestures from my able staff members under my continuous supervision. As they mature in age and technique, I personally groom them further in developing a deeper understanding of the dance form and enhancing their performance by working on - grace, endurance, sensitivity and presentation. While audio or video tools may be supplementary, I believe in a one - on - one approach much like the oral and visual learning that is the hallmark of my 'tradition'.  - Ramya

Arpana means 'offering' in Sanskrit and it is with this spirit of offering dance to the Divine that the school began. Since humble beginnings in 1982, Ramya Harishankar has personally trained several 100 students in this rigorous art form with more than 150 of them 'graduating' and performing their dance debut or Arangetram. The teaching follows much in the pattern of the 'Guru-Shishya' tradition of yore. The students are not mere enrolees in the school but develop a personal relationship with their teacher over the years, learning many intricacies of the dance form, performance techniques and cultural awareness. Through her school, Ramya has helped build artistic sensitivity, appreciation and understanding of cultural traditions in the community. Her students also acquired physical and mental discipline, strength of character and personalities that have held them in good stead through their high school, college and working careers. Many continue to be a part of the Arpana Dance Company post Arangetram and some have become torchbearers of the form.

"I believe learning a performing art and achieving a certain amount of proficiency requires regular attendance, a good practice schedule, exposure to all dance forms/ dancers, family support, self motivation and an intelligent approach. Even though it may be only an extracurricular activity for many students, the art form itself is no less than any other art or science, requiring years of dedicated mental and physical work. It is a life long journey of growth and learning."    - Ramya

Cal Performances presents Akram Khan in XENOS, Sat-Sun, March 2-3
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

"A blaze of glory. Khan's striking, beautiful lament is an extraordinary way to wind down a solo dance career."
—Time Out (London)

Dance

Akram Khan
XENOS
A Cal Performances Co-commission

British (by Bangladeshi descent) dancer/choreographer Akram Khan is revered for physically demanding, visually spellbinding solo productions which combine Indian kathak with modern dance in works of sublime storytelling. Seen here in an exclusive West Coast engagement, XENOS is Khan's final solo creation before his planned retirement from solo performance. A powerful work that reveals the beauty and horrors of the human condition through the myth of Prometheus, it is told from the perspective of an Indian soldier recruited to fight in the trenches of World War I for the British Crown. "Xenos" means "stranger" or "alien" in Greek, and Khan's work bravely explores the soldier's alienation as he is trapped between two cultures in the colonial system. Performed with live musical accompaniment. "A work of incredible potency, of emotional and cultural depth that sings and surges with the confidence of an artist at the peak of his powers" (The Stage, London).

Approximate run time: 65 minutes, without intermission

Understanding Travel & Visitor Insurance

Imagine you're someplace abroad and you neither know your way around, nor do you speak the local language. Call it circumstance, or call it bad luck, but suddenly you experience what many travelers do - a medical mishap, a lost bag, or a missed connection. What do you? Who do you call? That's where we come in. With G1G Travel or Visitor insurance plans, you're given all day, every day access to our team of experts that are on standby to do what it takes to help you get your holiday back on track. So whether you want to be connected to a medical care provider, need an emergency medical evacuation, or simply want assistance with lost or stolen property, we've got you covered. Travel insurance picks up where your domestic insurance policies fall short, and cover you when you're most vulnerable.

As with most things in life, you get what you pay for. Since our policies are both flexible and customizable, costs tend vary according to the plan you pick, as well as trip specifics like duration, destination and method of travel. The best way to figure that out is to decide what kind of insurance you want, and then personalize it to your specific travel needs based on price, coverage, and value. Some people tend to rely on airlines or credit companies to provide them insurance, but often don't realize that these plans offer substantially less coverage, should you ever need it. Having built close relationships with insurance carriers for over 30 years, we're able to offer exclusive deals that enable you to pick a policy based on your individual needs.

In an industry known for its complicated jargon, we do our best to make the insurance buying process quick, easy, and as straight forward as it can be. To do so, we have developed a highly tuned search engine that curates policies tailored to your specific needs, and further narrows the focus to show you policies that fall within your eligibility and requirements, while staying true to G1G's rigorous standards. You can then compare your best options based on price, scope of coverage or any particular benefits and pick from among the highest rated carriers in the world!

You can buy a plan instantly, and most policies begin with 24 hours of approval. All you have to do is tell us about your travel plans, select a policy that works for you and pay to have your coverage begin by midnight the following day. We generally suggest you purchase coverage right after you book your flights and accommodation to ensure that you're covered from the get go. And of course, if you don't end up making the trip for some reason, your plan is both cancelable and refundable, no problem!

There are a lot of insurance companies out there. With G1G, you're able to compare and instantly purchase the best, if not lowest priced Travel or Visitor Insurance policy available, thanks to our one-of-a-kind travel insurance search engine. We're a company built on client loyalty, which comes from staying true to our high standards in product quality and customer service. We offer plans for students, visitors, globetrotters and groups, and our 30+ years of industry experience allows us to offer personalized, expert assistance 24/7 from anywhere in the world via your smartphone, tablet or computer, and the ability to manage your account, file a claim or generate a visa letter online, in a matter of minutes.

Its endowments benefit orphanages, children's schools, ashrams and temples.

The staff at HHE is one-pointed in their dedication to seeing that qualified donations will be used effectively for the purposes intended. Each beneficiary must give a detailed yearly report on its income from HHE and a schedule of how the next year's funds will be spent before funds are issued. We take it as a sadhana to see that your gifts meet their purpose.

Please place Hindu Heritage Endowment in your will, your year-end giving and/or your monthly budget. Whether you are inspired to give a few dollars to support orphanages or bequest millions in your will, write, give us a call or look us up on the Internet.

Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority
Business Genre:
Long Business Description:

Investing in Nature
Five-year Impact Report to the Community

In 2014, an overwhelming 68% of voters approved Measure Q, the Open Space, Wildlife Habitat, Clean Water, and Increased Public Access Funding Measure, a $24 annual parcel tax to fund the Santa Clara Valley Open Space Authority. Measure Q’s purpose is to protect and preserve natural open space areas for future generations by improving parks, open spaces, and trails; protecting water resources to prevent pollution and improve local water quality; preserving wildlife habitat; expanding public access; enhancing environmental education; and protecting scenic hillsides. In its first five years, Measure Q funded a doubling of the number of acres protected as open space in the Authority’s jurisdiction to almost 30,000 acres – including a once-in-a-generation acquisition of almost 1,000 acres of long threatened open space in the North Coyote Valley.

I’m so proud of what the Authority has been able to accomplish with the public’s strong support. The Measure Q-funded projects and programs in this report highlight the significant investments we are making together for the health of nature and people – investments that are supporting nature in and near our communities for clean air and water, protecting wildlife, their habitats and movement corridors, protecting natural areas and agricultural lands for their many community benefits, providing opportunities for healthy outdoor recreation, and enhancing our resilience to a changing climate.

Working closely with public agencies, non-profit organizations, and foundations, the Authority has effectively leveraged Measure Q funds to attract other public and private funds to protect open space, water resources, wildlife habitat, and agricultural lands, and to expand public access opportunities and multi-use trails. Through the Authority’s Urban Grant Program, funded by Measure Q, we’ve brought nature to urban communities across the jurisdiction, investing over $2.8M in over 30 projects to green our neighborhoods, seed community gardens, create parks, and connect children and families to nature through environmental education programs.

With the support of Measure Q, the Authority has efficiently and effectively invested in high-priority, high-impact projects to improve our quality of life. And these expenditures have resulted in an impressive return on investment – for every $1 of Measure Q funds spent, we’ve been able to attract $3 in public and private partnership funds for conservation, restoration, and recreation projects.

As former Secretary of the Interior Sally Jewell has said, we’re in the business of forever. Thanks to your support of Measure Q, the Authority’s investments in nature today are essential down payments on a livable future for many generations to come.

With gratitude,

Long Business Description:

So in 2008, I decided to do something to help these families help themselves by teaching them how to grow organic vegetables in their backyards.
This personal call to action has resulted in over 500 families graduating from our home gardening program, and the installation of over 530 raised garden beds, and that number continues to grow each year. As a result, the families in our programs not only have organic vegetables right in their backyards, but they also have the skills and knowledge to strengthen their community's resiliency."
