Sustainable SGV Coalition

APIFM partners with the Sustainable SGV Coalition, a group of community leaders passionate about improving our community, to conduct research, increase awareness and take action to focus on air, water, climate, and land in the West SGV.

Tobacco Prevention

APIFM’s tobacco prevention team aims to change social norms around tobacco use. API communities are not only among the populations most impacted by tobacco use but are among those most vulnerable to early adoption behaviors. Tobacco use is highly ingrained in API communities, where it is considered socially and culturally acceptable. Since 2019, SSG/APIFM has participated in health policy and prevention efforts to address tobacco use and secondhand smoke.
