We all deserve a healthy and clean environment where our communities can thrive.
APEN is redefining environmental justice and reimagining public safety.
When I came to APEN, I wanted to work alongside immigrant and refugee community members who were building power and standing up to big corporate interests to address the issues that matter most to our communities.
Earlier this year, after several high-profile incidents in which Bay Area Asian elders were attacked on camera, we called on our communities to step up and support our Chinatown and Eastlake communities. Hundreds of people responded to the call, volunteering to take shifts as volunteer ambassadors in Oakland Chinatown and helping to spread the word.
After twenty years on staff and nine years as APEN’s Executive Director, I am transitioning out of my role as Executive Director.
For over two decades, APEN has been building the power of Asian immigrant and refugee communities on the frontlines of fighting big polluters.
