These elements combine to help create the environment where accountability becomes real.
The work of APA is grassroots and accomplished through civic engagement, advocacy, and using a variety of programming aimed at reaching multiple layers of community– from the youth to the politicians.
“Activism is Love,” is a youth leadership institute that teaches youth how to organize and mobilize around community and police issues with the goal of preparing young people for leadership, politics and the social justice movement. The program prepares them to launch their own campaign on issues important to them.

“Operation Stay Engaged” is a program that educates the community on the political process, beginning with their local ward chairs and committee representatives, all of the way up to their U.S. Congressman. We strongly encourage voter registration and teach citizens to thoroughly investigate current politicians’ positions on the issues that affect their quality of life.
