Asian Pacific Environmental Network

A nonprofit organization

OUR MISSION

All people have a right to a clean and healthy environment in which their communities can live, work, learn, play and thrive. Towards this vision, APEN brings together a collective voice to develop an alternative agenda for environmental, social and economic justice. 

Through building an organized movement, we strive to bring fundamental changes to economic and social institutions that will prioritize public good over profits and promote the right of every person to a decent, safe, affordable quality of life, and the right to participate in decisions affecting our lives. APEN holds this vision of environmental justice for all people. Our work focuses on Asian immigrant and refugee communities.

OUR HISTORY

Asian Pacific Environmental Network is an environmental justice organization with deep roots in California’s Asian immigrant and refugee communities.  Since 1993, we’ve built a membership base of Laotian refugees in Richmond and Chinese immigrants in Oakland.  Together, we’ve fought and won campaigns to make our communities healthier, just places where people can thrive.
