Streets are the thoroughfares by which people move from place to place, not only by car, but also on foot or by bike. Many API communities, however, lack streets that are safe for pedestrians and cyclists — most streets in Los Angeles are designed first and foremost with cars in mind. Additionally, streets and sidewalks can only serve their purpose if they are well-maintained and safe; many, unfortunately, are not. Advocating for streets that are safe and accessible to all is only one aspect of the work that APIFM does in its mission to empower API communities.
