Program areas at APEN

Richmond ProgramAPEN's Richmond team continued to lead the fight against fossil fuel emissions and economic inequity in the City of Richmond. We helped to anchor the Richmond Our Power Coalition, helped to develop a local clean energy policy for the City of Richmond, and we developed a plan for a local solar project that is a collaboration with local youth organization, RYSE. We grew our youth leadership program and put on APEN Academy for Youth in the summer. Our student leaders participated in nonpartisan voter outreach and advocated for their family's needs. With our allies we launched Cooperation Richmond - a cooperative incubator for local entrepreneurs and loan fund - and we gave out our first loan to Rich City Rides, a bicycle cooperative. APEN and our local members and allies continued to educate local regulators about the need to decrease harmful emissions from the local refinery.

Oakland ProgramAPEN's Oakland staff continued our efforts to protect the rights of Chinatown tenants by offering monthly tenant workshops and connecting tenants to legal support. Oakland organizing staff also began new outreach to tenants in non-deed restricted affordable housing. We maintained our role as a member of the Community Choice Aggregation for the East Bay and advocated for equity in energy. We put on the annual APEN Academy and nearly 50 events for local community members. Our leadership development efforts educated local members about public speaking, civic engagement, strategic campaign analyses, and multi-racial alliances.

State & Policy ProgramAPEN worked with our allies statewide to educate decision makers and the general public about the need for local pollution reduction, expansion of the renewable energy industry that benefits low-income communities as consumers and workers, access to affordable housing and tenants' rights, and increased resources in disadvantaged communities for climate solution projects. We continued our leadership of the APEN-founded statewide alliance - Asian Pacific American Climate Coalition in addition to other strategic coalitions. California continues to be a leader in equitable climate solutions thanks to the work of APEN and our allies.
