The world is on fire. It’s no understatement to say that our people are facing political repression, overwhelming inequality, and climate catastrophe. Corrupt politicians and poisonous systems have robbed us of our ability to live, thrive, and be in abundant relationship with the land and one another. 

In the face of despair, APIENC has spent the last year remembering how to hope and vision into the future. Inspired by indigenous activists and The Work that Reconnects, we’ve asked ourselves: what will our work mean for the seven generations after us? 

Throughout 2019 members of APIENC stretched to take bold action that honors our ancestors and builds towards the future. We called on the radical legacies of Pride, led coalitions with other trans folks of color, created mutual aid networks, and committed to healing practice plans. We made decisions rooted in both our immediate needs and our vision for the liberated futures we’re fighting for

Years of investment in skills-building, TGNC leadership, and interdependent partnerships are coming to fruition. Now, in 2020, we’re committed to building strategy skills across the organization, so that we’re all prepared to get free.
