Scaling Up Community Resilience

To APEN and its 800 members, climate change is not only an environmental problem — it’s a social, political and economic problem rooted in an extractive economy that has concentrated poverty and pollution in working class communities of color. And it creates an opportunity for APEN to work closely with other People of Color-led organizations to redefine and reimagine environmental justice. We hope that this case study provides a closer look at the work happening at the intersection of climate change and migration, and that this extraordinary organization inspires you to ask questions, learn more, and get involved with your philanthropy in helping to strengthen the organizations and collaborations across the migrant and climate justice movements.
