APA Actions Teams
If you’re invested in creating compassionate change here in Arvada, consider joining an action team! Action teams are smaller gatherings with a deeper focus on a key issue. Action teams report back to the whole APA membership and drive events, speakers, and action items for the group to act on.
Affordable housing in Arvada and Jefferson County is in short supply. The Affordable Housing Team works to increase the supply of affordable housing and reduce homelessness.
Our group works to increase awareness of the enormous impact of war. We lobby our senators and our congresspeople, distribute information at public gatherings, and host speakers to educate and engage the community.
We recognize the importance of statewide education that is adequately funded and equitable for all Colorado kids. We partner with other education-based organizations in Colorado to support legislation and ballot initiatives that better fund CO schools.
The Environmental Action Group seeks to improve our natural environment for the benefit of all living things. We advocate for and testify for environmentally friendly legislation at the local, state, and federal levels.
We believe that Healthcare is a Human Right, not a commodity. Our team works toward a universal, single-payer healthcare system, and provides education and legislative advocacy.
The Political Action Team exists to monitor local and statewide political decisions and candidates that affect the residents of Colorado. The team seeks to educate local, state, and federal officeholders about progressive issues and inform the populace about where politicians stand on issues and how they can effect change.
The Social Connections Team works to keep Arvadans connected and engaged by organizing regular events for local progressives (that’s us!) to mingle, share ideas, and get inspired.
In addition to putting together these weekly calls to action for APA, the communications team leverages social media and the APA website to publicize events, raise issue awareness, generate conversation, and engage prospective new members.
