The Alameda Public Affairs Forum is a voluntary non-profit, non-partisan
educational group whose purpose is to educate the public in Alameda and
the wider San Francisco-East Bay Area about issues of local, national,
and international concern.
The APAF presents forums, discussion meetings and seminars to which the public is invited free of charge.
Voluntary donations to cover the costs of presenting the meetings and publicity are solicited at the meetings.
We’ve inaugurated a new custom to begin the evening: a reception with
snacks and juice and coffee before the Forum, starting at 6PM, in the
Library coffee shop –
bring your favorite finger food, dessert or juice etc., to share. A
good time to chat with the guest speaker(s) and your other friends
before the Forum program at 7:15.
