API Forward Movement (APIFM) cultivates healthy, long-lasting, and vibrant Asian and Pacific Islander communities through grassroots organizing. APIFM envisions a world where Asian and Pacific Islander communities – and all communities of color – have full power to access good health and a healthy environment.
The founders were advocates who saw that Asians and Pacific Islanders were being left out of public health efforts to address the obesity epidemic. Since then the organization’s focus has broadened to ensure APIs are served and represented in efforts to address a range of community health and environmental justice issues.
Day One is a community-based nonprofit organization with a 25 year history of providing effective, high quality and culturally-sensitive public health education, intervention, policy development and environmental prevention efforts.
Day One grew out of a collective vision of concerned community leaders in 1987. Their vision was spurred by the drug epidemic in Pasadena and Altadena, especially among youth and in the Northwest area. Since then the organization has become a leader in youth advocacy and community health in the San Gabriel Valley.
We are excited to have them join our Nature for All team!
