Asian Pacific Environmental Network

Asian Pacific Environmental Network is an environmental justice organization with deep roots in California’s Asian immigrant and refugee communities. Since 1993, APEN has built a membership base of Laotian refugees in Richmond and Chinese immigrants in Oakland. APEN brings together a collective AAPI voice to develop an alternative agenda for environmental, social, and economic justice for all people.

APEN’s work is grounded in the leadership of immigrant and refugee community members, who know that to win what our communities deserve, we have to build power at many levels and in many ways.
