Water is life. The People’s Water Board advocates for access, protection, and conservation of water. We believe all people should have access to clean, safe, accessible and affordable water and sanitation. Water is a human right and part of the commons that should be held in the public trust free of privatization. We work with partners and allies to promote awareness of these issues and the interconnectedness of all people and resources.
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 and Pacific Islander communities.
