Parks provide people with a space to gather, exercise and relax outdoors. But many API communities lack adequate land devoted to public recreational use. Additionally, parks can only serve their purpose if they are well-maintained and safe; many, unfortunately, are not. Advocating for accessible parks is only one aspect of the work that APIFM does in its mission to empower API communities.
