At the beginning of 2023, we decided we were going to do something different.

Instead of focusing our energy on big external campaigns, we were going to dig deep with our membership, articulating a vision for the future rooted in our members’ lived experiences and building the infrastructure we need to make that vision real.

That’s exactly what we did: holding community visioning workshops across the state, expanding to Southern California and training 41 new member-leaders from Richmond to LA. Thanks to the support of people like you, we were able to invest in our infrastructure and grow our staffing, gearing up for big fights ahead.

Even as we focused on our members and infrastructure, the world demanded our attention – and time and time again, our members turned out in 2023 to demand solutions that put working-class communities of color first.

With your help, we mobilized to demand accountability from big polluters, organized to stand in solidarity with Palestine, and helped to secure needed resources for community-led solutions to climate change and public safety.

In 2023, we dug deep with our members and focused on building and strengthening our base. In 2024, we’re taking the fight to the fossil fuel industry. Thank you for standing with APEN and our members in 2024 and beyond.
