The endorsements keep rolling in! I am excited to announce that the Asian Pacific Environmental Network (APEN) Action has endorsed my campaign for Oakland City Council District 2.
APEN Action believes that 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 Action brings together a collective voice to develop an alternative agenda for environmental, social and economic justice.
As an environmental justice activist, I have been a supporter and volunteer of APEN Action's sister organization APEN since its founding in 1993 and served on their board from 2014 to 2017.
Many of APEN Action's members live in District 2 including Chinatown, and I am proud to have received their endorsement.
“Nikki has a long, accomplished record of working tirelessly to advocate towards an equitable future for working families,” said Mabel Lam, Political Director, APEN Action. “Time and time again, she has proved to be a bold, progressive leader whose values and vision reflect the needs of our community. APEN Action is proud to support Nikki in her candidacy for the Oakland City Council!”
The campaign is really gaining momentum and I am overwhelmed by all of the support. Remember that I will need every one of you to contribute your time, money, and efforts alongside me through November. If you haven't already, please contribute or sign-up to volunteer today.
