API Forward Movement
The nonprofit API Forward Movement opened its new Alhambra office on Main Street to locals on Wednesday afternoon, inviting people to learn about the organization’s efforts in promoting healthy eating, environmental sustainability and civic engagement. This office joins API Forward Movement’s downtown Los Angeles and Chinatown locations.
Open house attendees learned about API Forward Movement’s Alhambra projects, including the nonprofit’s air quality monitoring project, for which they’ve installed PurpleAir pollution monitoring sensors all over the city. The organization recently received a $15,000 grant from Southern California Gas Company to install 50 more sensors in Alhambra and Monterey Park.
Alhambra students also presented their Vote at 16 initiative, which would lower the voting age for school board elections to 16. Attendees were also treated to recipe books emphasizing healthy eating and locally grown and culturally relevant produce.
