Building Power for a Just Transition
Now is a time to grow our movement for liberation. The movement of immigrants and refugees—across ethnicity, faith, language, immigration status —is showing up in big ways in the most impacted communities across California. The victories, lessons, and values of the coalitions of working-class people of color, fighting on the frontlines of racism, poverty and pollution, offer all of us a strategic way forward.Posted by Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN) on Wednesday, April 26, 2017

This month, our members and allies will be standing up for our families, our communities, and our planet. From Earth Day to May Day, we'll build on the great victories we've had in the last year- passing key initiatives that centralize our families voices, building our voting power, and lifting our collective voice.

We couldn't do it without our partners and allies Front and Centered, The Center for Community Change Action and the tireless efforts of our base and leaders who will not keep quiet while injustice is being done.Posted by OneAmerica on Monday, April 17, 2017
A Healthy, Thriving South Los Angeles
We're excited to share our latest video, produced with the support of The Center for Community Change, that highlights our work with RePower L.A., IBEW local 18, and the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power in the creation of the Utility Pre-Craft Trainee Program.

Our team took on coordinating in-depth documentary work in three locations, with five organizations, ten freelancers, to produce nine videos of varying lengths. I know it’s a stunning equation. Our first batch of films were around the election, urging voters from communities impacted by dirty energy to build power at home through civic engagement and voting. Our next set will be released this month and feature in more depth the work of 4 tenacious organizations leading the way in the struggle for climate justice. Our final piece is a 10 minute film that knits the stories of all the groups together to show that communities on the frontlines are fighting for solutions that work for us all.
We're hard at work all over Washington to make sure that our communities get out to vote and make our voices heard. Check out this awesome video from our friends at The Center for Community Change and Survival Media Agency with community leaders going door-to-door to let people know about some of the excellent things they'll get to vote on.Posted by OneAmerica on Friday, November 4, 2016
