Most seniors in our community don’t speak English, and Chinatown is the only place we can access health services in Chinese, shop for the groceries we like to cook with, and access other essential services. Whenever I need something, I know I can go to Chinatown and find it.
As we considered moving from a Sole ED leadership model to Co-Directorship, we wanted to understand what Co-Director and Sole ED leadership models looked like in practice for movement organizations, and the benefits and challenges of each. What structures and practices are needed for organizations to thrive under each of these models?
For me, stepping into this Co-Director role alongside Vivian means coming home to the people that I’ve thrown down with for over a decade, to the land that has raised me, given me energy and life.
For over two decades, APEN has been building the power of Asian immigrant and refugee communities on the frontlines of fighting big polluters.
